Tool for Preset-Export
« on: June 21, 2016, 05:10:15 PM »
Hi Alexey,

After a longer time, i´m now working again on some changes to my monster BCR-preset.
Heinz had some really good suggestions and i think we found very nice solutions together.

Now my problem: i really can not remember my latest preset-changes (there was some experimental stuff) and Heinz brought some changes too.
Now how would i find the differences? it´nearly impossible in such a large preset. And there are SOO many details (e.g. in feedback/Azdisplay).

So i decided to build a little tool, which can export a preset to a textfile and then it´s easy to compare with some Diff-Tool (i´m using TotalCommander, which has a diff-function built in, but there are many similar tools who show the differences very nice).

For me, this solved my problems and i can now easily compare the different presets. Perhaps this is useful for you and others too.
Attached is a first version to test, which works for me but i can imagine enhancements (sorting and perhaps XML-export).
Usage is simple: just open the Az-Window, select the preset to export, then in AzCtrlExp click "Start" and wait until finished (it´s quite fast) then click "export".

WOW ;)

Sorry that there is still no build-in feature for that.
Also note that not every parameter of all actions are displayed in the list box. So some changed can be unnoticed.

I have long term plan to write an "exported". Really I would like to have a "Merger" as well...
