Canít import a shows file
« on: November 30, 2017, 10:27:32 PM »
I created a show on my iPad Air 2 and exported it to a Dropbox folder. I then tried to import the show into my iPad Pro but kept getting the message that it was not a show file (which it is!). I have the latest Master Fader 4 app installed and also the latest iOS 11 upgrade. Could it be that iOS 11 is preventing the import?

Ok, I tried importing it back into the Air 2and it would not do it. So it must be a bug in the latest update. What other way can I do this? How do you email the file and then import to another iPad? This used to work fine. Itís crazy that it doesnít work on the very iPad that created the file to begin with!

Got it. I opened DropBox and emailed the file to myself. I then opened the email using the iPad Pro and the file was available to be opened with MF4. The fault must be in DropBox.

I looked at the file in DB and it seemed correct. I even renamed it to no avail. However, the email method worked ok.

Update. I now use a new method involving Air drop which sends the shows file directly to the receiving iPad.
1 Press gear icon>shows
2 Press offline shows>import/export>export>select all>ok
3 Air drop button appears showing the receiving iPad. Tap the Air drop button, Master Fader opens and the file 
   appears on the receiving iPad. Press ok>ok. Done.
