Copying State Values Between States

If you have many States that use similar property settings, you can define the settings once and then copy these State values to the other States within the same State Group.

You can copy the values of a State to an existing or newly-created State within the same State Group. You can even decide which objects will be affected by the source's State values.

To copy State values:

  1. Click the Copy State Values... button from one of the following views:

    • State Property Editor.

    • Mixing Desk.

    The Copy States Values dialog box opens.
