Data parsing

Hi Andre, 

Is there any way to parse the data that is stored in the Clipboard, when we drag and drop an arrangement from one song to another? I'm particularly interested in extracting (and reconstructing) the arrangement data.

Not yet. Arrangements and containers are huge structures, so nothing is actually copied to the clipboard but an internal reference that's kept as long as needed. XML might do the trick, but there is no use for exporting XML at this time. 

What do you imagine doing with arrangement data?

If the XML could be exported and reimported that would work fine.

basically I want to edit the arrangement externally, block out a composition on my iPad, then reimport of possible.

The XML of a typical arrangement is several megabytes large. It's a deeply nested structure of countless different objects. Not something that would be easy to parse and rebuild.

We have XML import/export on the list, though. At least at the parameter level.
