Feature Request: Copy & Paste Controls
« on: December 27, 2015, 08:23:08 pm »
I keep a uniform design throughout my controls, but I have to enter the specific settings whenever I add a new one.

It would be awesome to be able to copy and paste controls and have the ability to edit the device as needed.

Example:
On/Off Switch 1 controls Device 1
I make a copy of On/Off Switch 1
Now On/Off Switch 1 and On/Off Switch 2 both control Device 1
I edit On/Off Switch 2 to control Device 2


Edit:
Would adding this feature to Today Widget controls also be possible?
Also, added home screen shot to show design standard.

Good idea.  I'll see if I can come up with a quick implementation for this.
HomeWave is available in the App Store!  Turn your iPhone/iPad into an easy-to-use remote control for Vera.

I've always thought a copy/paste function would be a good idea. I spend a lot of time configuring device controls that are identical in every way to other device controls, except for device number.

A way to copy an entire screen would be awesome too! I have been working on a nice layout as a TV remote, with icons / custom colours / labels / scenes etc.. Slowly chipping away and enjoying it but really dont want to repeat it all for the other TV's in the house.

If you do come up with a copy button for normal scenes / devices could it please also work with the control screens while on the main screen.

Hold down on a button and a copy / paste option appears, would be ideal!

You can already copy entire screens:
1) Bring up the properties for the button that opens the screen to be copied
2) Scroll down, use the Save button
3) Save to phone or dropbox
4) Create a new screen button and load the file into that from the menu

Then link the controls on the new screen to the other TV

Hi!

Wanted to let you know that there seems to be a problem with the SAVE SCREEN function you mention above - first time I've tried it so I can't say when it broke...

When you attempt to SAVE a screen to DROPBOX, HomeWave bombs and goes back to the iPhone home screen and no saved file is present (when you go to save again)
When you attempt to SAVE a screen to the iPhone, HomeWave again bombs to iPhone home screen but a saved file IS present (when you go to save again)

Thanks!
