Is it possible to create a page that has my favorite commands from all my devices?
I tried to copy & paste buttons from one device page to another device page but it didn't paste.

I'm talking about the soft buttons, not the hard buttons which can be punched through.

Using IR.

Yes.

One way is use the IR database. Find the device #, type it in, drag and drop the command to the soft button you want it on. Rinse/repeat till you have all the commands you want on the page.

The other way is copy/paste. After you copy the button, make sure you are clicking on the hard button next to the screen to paste (not on the screen area of the editor). Just tested it on an MX890 and MX990, worked fine.

Thank you!

Method 1 will F people up that have a RF base and assigned IR ports. Don't use that method. Alias commands, always.

If they are using assigned ports from a base station, method 2 will F them up too. Copy/Paste puts the command on that page the same as drag/drop.

I agree Alias is the correct way to do it. But newbies might have a harder time wrapping their heads around it. And they are more likely to have their ports set to 'all'.
