Copying a portion of markers from the itable object and pasting elsewhere
I am using the itable object to store consecutive values for an algorithimic process patch I’m working on. I’m trying to find a way to copy and paste portions of the inputted values from itable so I can move them around but I just haven’t been able to figure it out. I am looking to somehow put the selected portion in a capture object and then reinput the portion back into the original itable at another specific location.
I thought it would have something to do with the select tool from itable but unless I’m mistaken this seems to only be a visual cue instead of a function.
Any point of reference is greatly appreciated. Thanks.
EDIT: I’ve played with the way of using a counter object to shoot a given section into an appended list but feels much too clunky to be part of the work flow. At this point I am thinking if I should be using some sort of external table object that would handle the task better.
It is a shame that iTable is so limited. If your table is <= 64 steps (or can be divided into 64 step segments) and relatively limited in scope you might take a look at live.step (range is ints 0-127 – though perhaps the ‘duration’ or ‘extra’ layers offer more possibilities). Aside from those limitations it is much more feature laden than itable and editing, rotating and modifying the data in various ways is possible. Otherwise there is no obvious alternative that I can think of unless you are prepared to enter the (somewhat murky) world of IRCAM’s FTM or, perhaps, jsui…
Another thing you might consider is that while you can’t cut, copy, past, and insert with [itable] you can with [table] using the select tool.
Also if you give [itable] and [table] the same "table name" edits in one will show in the other.

Nice one Rick. Didn’t realise copy/paste was possible with Table.
Ah, what a neat trick Rick! Looks like I can carry on with itable after all :)
