Post Saving a created FX
When I create an FX (this is intensity only) I start by Using Components>New Smart effect. I create an FX and then Save Template. It shows up in the QP window as expected. Then I save show. Close Vista. Then when I open the saved show my created FX is not there, just the pre-loaded FX,

What am I missing here?

I checked this on a Windows machine running v2.3.18361, saving new FX templates to the show and the user library. In both cases it worked as expected.

Are you using the latest build and are you using a Mac or Windows PC?

This seems to be working for me now. Not sure what I was doing wrong.

I usually edit on a Windows 10 PC, saving to a flash drive. Then that saved show runs on a Mac laptop for live stage events.

Thanks for taking a look for me.
