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.
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
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..)

This maybe just in the latest pre ...or not...
there are two SWS actions:
Copy selected tracks sends
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.
