Re: Saving complete Mobius configurations as a single file...

Yes, use scripts.  The MIDI Configurations and the Track Setups are stored
in the same XML file (mobius.xml) but they are independent things,
changing one won’t change the other.    Here is one example:

!name Midi Config 1/Track Setup A
set bindings “Midi Config 1"
set setup “Setup A”

“bindings” is the parameter that controls which MIDI Binding Set is
selected (we called these MIDI Configurations in older releases).  You can
reference it by name or by number.  Number 0 is the common bindings, 1 is
the first set of overlay bindings, etc.  Since the common bindings are
always active setting this parameter to zero effectively removes the
current overlay bindings.

“setup” is the parameter that controls which Track Setup is selected.  You
can reference these by name or number, the number of the first setup is 1.

Hi Bob,

Here's a possible third way:
First create the different Track Setups and MIDI Control Bindings
setups. Then use a script to load any needed configuration of the two.

This worked well for me many years and many Mobius versions ago. I had
to call those scripts in reset mode though, or else it would crash
Mobius. To keep theses "global setup switches" apart from the usual
commands I use to perform with Mobius I only assigned them to
on-screen buttons in Mobius. I can't promise this works with the
current version but it might be something to look into and try out.
