Let John know. I confirm that build v4a4.71 consistently crashes when one tries to record a history or paseq that includes a dual paint using a WARP or MSG secondary. It records fine with a ImOP secondary.
Ron, i didn't get the email you were referring to?
But I'm assuming you are referring to problems with a manually drawn dual mode paint stroke recorded in a PASeq. I believe the issue you ran into is fixed now, so i'll send you a new build to download in a little bit that has the fix. Let it never be said Synthetik isn't responsive when a bug is reported.
The old paint synthesizer macro edit menu functionality is accessible in the version 4 help browser by using the active links on the paint Synthesizer Macro Edit help page there. Active links are command links shaped like small black arrows. When you click the arrow the command gets executed. So in the screen shot below i'm clicking on the Reinitialize paint synthesizer macro edit command. After doing that the current paint synthesizer control settings are reinitialized, which leads to a simple hard edged solid color paint preset.
