is it possible to drag set elemets to session view?

Post by JordProd » Mon Apr 22, 2019 10:14 am

hey guys! so ive created a few tracks in ableton with some plugins etc, i put them to a groop and i want to save the groop as a preset.

so im dragging my group to the "user library" folder in the broswer and live saves it as a Live Set there. great.
now to recall this preset im trying to drag it from the browser to the "Drop files and Devices here" area in session view but ableton does not let me drop it.
however it works perfectly fine when im dragging to the arragment view
obviously when i drag to the arrangment view the tracks also become available in the session view as well, so why does ableton not alloow me to drop it straight to my session view if i perfer?

is it a bug or by design?

im using the 10.1 beta
thanks

Drag the content (of the song using the browser) to the clip area and it will work.
This is how I used to do all my live sets: drag Session content of songs to one project in Session.

Rather than just dragging to the "Drop files and Devices here" area, drag to the top of the session view, where you would normally see the name of the track.
