Importing presets and Macros

Recommended Posts

Hi Folks, 

Ive been a long time user of AP (And AD actually) and I am about to switch over to use AP for iPad to help my workflow whilst on location. Is it possible to export my presets and Macros from AP desktop to the iPad version?


Thanks in Advance

Not sure about presets, but macros can be imported. The do need to be .macros files. (Note the s). Something to do with exporting via macr library on desktop (I don’t have desktop).

Hi Mvdarbs,

As @DM1 has confirmed you can get the macros over to the iPad version. 

But the presets, that's not possible.  You'd have to re-create those on the iPad.  You could get the file from the desktop version where your presets are saved but as the IOS is locked down, you wouldn't be able to 'add' it to the iPad version and we don't have an import option for Presets.
