Save State interface

Since build 7686 Previzion supports save state XML files which allow the user to choose which parameters to load and send across the network.

State-section

Load – Will load the currently selected state in the list of states.

Save – saves over the top of the currently selected state.

Save As – Saves your state with a new name.

Import – Opens up a file explorer window allowing the user to find a save state .xml file in the windows explorer and add it to the save states list.

Export – Allows the user to place a state .xml in a directory using the Windows file explorer.

Transmit – sends your current state settings to one or more different Previzion systems on your network.

Reset – Sets your currently loaded state to all default settings.  This can be helpful if you have recently moved between versions of Previzion and are experiencing odd problems.

Remove – Deletes a state from the list, as well as from the state directory.

Transmit Groups – Selects which parameters are sent over the network to connected Previzion systems.

State .XML Files

Save states are stored as .XML files which are located in C:\Program Files\Lightcraft\States\ .  Previzion.xml is the state which Previzion will open when first starting the application, and is automatically created with default settings if it is not found in the proper directory.

State-Folder

 

State files consist of human readable and editable XML text.
