Import Soft Patch

Working with my offline editor, I'm trying to import a USITT soft patch, but no luck. I've exported a patch file from Lightwright. Palette recognizes that there is patch information in the file, and I've checked the "Patch" check box in the import dialogue, but nothing happens after that. I've tried doing this with files with .alq and .txt extensions, with the default patch already loaded, with everything unpatched, with the number of channels pre-configured to match the number of incoming channels, and importing as a copy and not as a copy. I've even tried exporting my patch from Palette and then importing back into a new show file. The result is always the same. Nothing. There's nothing about importing in the manual. Any thoughts?

Out of curiousity, what version are you running? 10.3.1?

I would bet 3.1 was rough. I've just done it in a beta (later than 3.1). Tell us which version you're using. There may be hope.

Yes, sorry. 10.3.1, I'm not on the beta lists. I'll take a look again when the next release comes out. It was only an experiment.
