I'm not able to reproduce this, it works fine here.
Can you try renaming the Air Player folder in C:/users/your username/ so you start with a fresh configuration, just to check if that makes any difference.

I'm sorry, you're right, I did have the same issue. Will add it to our to-do list.

Thanks. For optimized workflow I would suggest the panel uploading tk be carried out when user add the panels in the main tab rather than the create/edit tab. Its a bit hiddened

That wouldn't help that much. Because if you make a change in your instrument in Air Manager, this won't be committed to Air Player.

And that's essentially the whole problem. Air Player does not know if you changed your instrument(s). Therefore you have to manually 'push' them.

Could Corjan work his magic and do the transfer automatically if Air Player can see Air Manager running on the network and it’s instrument version is below that of the version sitting in AM.

You would still have to retain the manual method but for updates it could work.

That means that for each little change you make to your own instrument, you would have to increase the version number. In not sure if that's very practical.

I guess if you did it that way it would be for the user to decide when it got transferred. I.e. when the version number is changed. If you wanted to do lots of incremental updates there would still be the manual method. Just an idea.

Then there are two different ways to 'transfer' instruments, I'm not really in favor of that. In theory some sort of Dropbox-like synchronization system would be perfect, but that's not easy to develop and will probably bring up all sorts of other issues.

Yes not an easy ideal solution. I’ve not actually tried it myself. Do you have to do each instrument separately. If so then perhaps a window that lists all your custom instruments and you just tick the ones you want to upload and then click once and all the ones you ticked are updated in one operation.

Just thinking out loud so I may be wide of the mark.

You can select all the instruments you want to push and then click push.
