Notes on importing/exporting messages in ProTool V6.0

  • Entry
  • Associated product(s)

Where can I find the functions "Edit > Import" and "Edit > Export" of ProTool V5.x in ProTool V6.0?

These functions are not actively available in ProTool V6.0.

In the file "Protool.ini" ("Drive:\Siemens\ ProTool") please change the following entry in [Settings] from

OldMessageImportExport = 0


OldMessageImportExport = 1

After you restart ProTool, you will find the menu items "Import" and "Export" in "Edit".

Starting with ProTool V6.0 SP2, the functions Import/Export are activated again.
