Live 9.x.x, MacOS Sierra: Can't Paste Into Save dialogue?

Post by tribalogical » Fri Nov 17, 2017 6:09 am

I'm working with individual clips, and when exporting an edited clip I want to paste a file name into the save dialogue (rather than typing it in manually), but Live doesn't allow that. I'm working with a very large number of files that can also have a long and complex naming convention, so it's a PITA to manually type in.

It seems to be the case for saving a Set as well. No paste functionality in the save dialogues? This works just fine everywhere else in MacOS... e.g. I can paste into a save dialogue in, say, Text Edit, with no issue.

Is this a bug, or do I need to make it a feature request?

(I'll post this in the feature request forum as well, just in case)

peace.

I have found this to be quite annoying for some time now.

Still not able to do this in the Live 10 beta.
