From hopi: http://forum.cockos.com/showthread.php?t=63720 ___________________________________________________________

This maybe just in the latest pre ...or not...

there are two SWS actions:

Copy selected tracks sends

and

Paste sends to selected tracks

OK copy works... but then [dum de dum dum]

Paste only works to one selected track at a time...
so at the very least the action is mis-named!

I would expect to be able to select a bunch of tracks and paste the copied send to all of them at once stroke.... no???

I hope it's a small fix as this can be very handy.

Initial report was not a bug in fact and the fix has introduced other probs (e.g. smart track copy/paste is broken)
New fix coming soon: when you copy SEVERAL TRACKS sends, paste should work on SEVERAL selected tracks too.
Example:
copy sends for 2 tracks 1 & 2 with sends like 1->3 and 2->4
paste sends to tracks 5 & 6 should do: 5->3 and 6->4
AND NOT: 5->3 + 5->4 and 6->3 + 6->4

if you copy SEVERAL TRACKS sends and paste them to 1 track only, only the sends of the 1st selected track will be ciopied and this is normal

the same goes with receives

^^ I meant "only the sends of the 1st selected track will be pasted and this is normal" and not "... ciopied ..."

ok, I know I come back and forth on this issue but I implemented a new solution ( r926 ) that should make everybody happy.

also below is a better explanation of what is going on (from http://forum.cockos.com/showpost.php?p=1061214&postcount=1529 ).


hey Tod, this is "by design": S&M paste sends/receives/routings actions just paste routings respectively, as they were copied. I mean, say you have:

  • track 1 with a set of routings a
  • track 2 with a set of routings b
  • track 3 with a set of routings c
  • track 4 with a set of routings d

Now say you copy those routings from tracks 1 and 2 and paste them to tracks 3 and 4

(1) You will get:

  • track 3's routings = c+a
  • track 4's routings = d+b

^^ i.e. multi-track support, another reason is SWS smart copy/cut/paste actions that are also based on this code: they copy/paste tracks (or items/envs but that's another story) with all their respective routings (contrary to native copy/paste tracks).

(2) What you describe would lead to this kind of paste:
=> track 3's routings = c+a+b
=> track 4's routings = d+a+b


That being said, as this "issue" is often reported (SWS Issues 174, 506 & other threads) and since these reports can make sense, I'll update routing actions for the next build like:
(1) when copying routings from x tracks / pasting to x tracks -OR- (2) when copying routings from x tracks / pasting to y tracks

(^^ looks complicated but I think it's intuitive..)
