    [Feature Request] add templates to export window

    When exporting files (source or compiled, protected or not, doesn't matter) to
    an assembly, I want a feature that allows me to save the list of files for this
    assembly configuration into a template, or a profile.

    I want to be able to recall this template, or profile, so that I can quickly rebuild
    the list of input files for the assembly without having to click on each individual
    file again.

    -=o=-

    In fact, I'd like to see some predefined buttons in the export window where a
    button is associated with a specific template, and just by clicking the button,
    I have loaded a specific template (aka, predetermined list of files, plus the
    assembly name), so that these convenience buttons are a 'Quick Load'
    feature which let's me load a specific template.

    So, this is actually two suggestions:

    1. Feature to save/load templates in export window. Each template saves the
    assembly name and list of files, and could be reloaded into the export window,
    similar to how is done today for other templates.

    2. Add a few easy access buttons, labeled simple as '1', '2', '3', which allow a
    way to associate an action (save/load) with a template file. That way, I click
    '1', and I can load a specific template quickly. The idea is that these become
    Quick Load and/or Quick Save buttons, bypassing the 'convenient tediousness'
    of the normal save/load template interfaces.

    -=o=-

    At the very last, adding templates to the export window, just like for indicator
    settings, or chart settings, etc, should be fairly straightforward and easy to
    conceptualize idea.

    If I had templates in the export window, it would then be much simpler to AutoIt
    the remaining steps needed to build/compile/export an assembly.

    Just my 2˘.

    Yes. This would be great. Also, if possible and not too much trouble, the "export templates" described here could allow us to put other things in there besides NinjaScript - for instance, if there is a .wav file or whatever that is required, we should be able to stick that into the .zip also.

      Yes!

      And reference assemblies, too!

      It would be nice to save those auxiliary filenames into the
      template file, but first, the export window also needs an
      interface for the sound files and assembly reference files,
      right?

      I mean, until the export window supports these auxiliary
      files, the template can't save their names ...

        Hello, thanks for writing in. I will submit a feature request for both of these as two feature requests, so you will get two tracking IDs.

            Thanks, Chris. Appreciated. +1 ... +1 ... for both.

            Worth noting for the community that SFT-5945 is "brand new", but SFT-316 has been around for probably some 12-15 years, possibly even longer. Adjust your expectations accordingly.

            Thanks.
