Variations File when saving a patch from GTR Library to User Library Media Folder

Hi,   When I stumble across a favourite "phrase" within the new GTR library, I like to save the patch into my User Library as I know that all of the parameters and knob positions will be saved within the copy of that patch.   I did notice that when saving,  the variation file from the GTR library didn't get copied across into my User Library Media Folder.  I manually copied the "Moody Chill GTR Phrases LIST.txt" file across in windows explorer to my User Library Media folder and now the copy of the GTR patch in my User Library references the chord sequences.

Would there be a chance for a "check" to see if a variation file is being referenced and copy it across and/or warn of an overwrite if a media file of same name is found in the User Library.

Cheers,

Great library by the way!

This is a very good idea, but it's the tip of an iceberg in terms of consistency-checking.

There should be no problem with saving a patch into library B, which references a variation file in library A. Is there some reason why you want a redundant copy in the User Library?

@getdunne    no,   I don't need an extra copy.     I think that maybe the original patch may have re-mapped the variation file as if it were in my User Library (which is wasn't) -- therefore I didn't see any of the chord progressions until I copied the text file into my User Library media area

Ah! That's a bug. (UPDATE: well, not a bug, so much as a design flaw.) Thank you for spotting that!

I'll look into it. In the meantime, copying the file, as you did, is a work-around.
