save tracks as track template, slot x #591
From eure.ja...@gmail.com on August 08, 2013 08:54:00
Would love to be able to save directly in to a specific slot, mostly just to avoid the confirmation window. :)
or, if it's easier, change how the Auto-save action works. There are actions available to clear slot(x) if you edit the S&M ini. If Auto-save track template slots saved to the first empty slot, instead of adding a slot, a macro could be made to save to slot(x).

oops, this one is a bug in fact:
=> thanks for the report, fix coming soon!
About the FR:
I see the (nice!) idea, James: doing everything from macros!
As you probably already know what you propose has some drawbacks though...
That way you could handle everything from macros, w/o worrying about slot numbers, corner-cases (the "first empty slot" you were talking about), w/o tweaking S&M.ini, etc..
Waiting for some feedback before implementing this => let me know what you think (or if something is not clear)!

Thanks for the feedback, let's do it then!
First, I forgot to clarify that this "last slot" idea makes sense assuming the "prompt bug" above is fixed. I mean, if auto-save actions never prompt for anything and always add a new slot/file, i.e. the last slot we're talking about.
Yes, in fact there would be a "last slot" flavor for all existing slot actions - i.e. many new actions but not much work as I said.
It would be a normal slot (not "temporary" one) that is persisted when re-launching REAPER, etc.. But that's actually why I also proposed to add actions like "SWS/S&M: Resources - Delete last track template slot/file" so that you can cleanup things when you are done with your macros.
