Batch "Copy Current" for initial value of widgets?

Hi all,

When using Initial Value for a widget set to “This Value”, there is a “Copy Current” button that updates the saved initial value. Imagine an organ Rackspace with 20 widgets on it. If I want to dial up a new patch, I have to click on 20 widgets and click the “Copy Current” button. Is there a way to save “Copy Current” for all selected widgets?


There isn’t a way to do that right now.

But what do you mean by “dialing up a new patch” that requires you to copy all the widget values?

Thanks for the quick reply. In this example I’m using BX-3 Hammond (IKMultimedia). I have a Rackspace with drawbars and many controls on it. If I always want the same starting point when I recall the Rackspace, then I use the “This Value / Reset on Rackspace activation”, which is great.

Now, imagine I decide to call up a different preset on the Hammond as my default starting point (or I move the draw bars and want that as my default starting point), I have to visit all the widgets one by one and click “copy current”, otherwise, the widget values will override the preset change the next time I recall the Rackspace.

When you call up a different preset, the parameters should change and the widgets mapped to those parameters should be set automatically.
If that is not happening, then that is a bug in the plugin.

When you are in SetList Mode then the widgets always get back to the saved value of the widgets when a rackspace variation is recalled.
No need to save the current value in the widget.

But the widget property “Ignore Variations” must not be set.

Ok, but then in SetList Mode a Snapshot could be made.

Yes - and then perhaps push that back to a rackspace

Pretty new still to GP. Actually, I am unaware of “snapshot” feature. investigating now!


Not sure what dhj means by “push that back to a backspace”, but Snapshots are exactly what I was looking for. Thanks so much guys!

Push back means that the widget changes in the song part are pushed back to the underlying rackspace variations.
It is documented exactly in the documentation.


Here’s the link: How to capture variation edits?


This doesn’t only works for setlists, but also from the panel view using the contextual menu (right click, I don’t remember the name of the option to update all values at the same time…).

Found, it is It is “Widgets - Update Explicit Initial Values”: Manage Rackspaces/Variations contextual menu

Hi David. I literally just stumbled over the “Update Explicit Initial Values” yesterday. :slight_smile:
