Reloading a saved msg preset for further editing

I've been working through the MSG tutorials. Really enjoying this aspect of Studio Artist, but I haven't been able to figure out how to edit an msg preset that I saved.

After clicking through the evol editor until I develop a preset that I like. I export the msg preset, then import it expecting to be able to do further editing. but it just loads into the canvas. How to I load it into the evol editor or advanced msg editor? Is there a different way to save an msg preset?

  • Whatever is the current MSG preset is what is loaded into the MSG Advanced Editor (for advanced editing). So if you import a MSG preset , that then shows up in the MSG Advanced Editor. Or, if you click on a evolution editor preview cell, the MSG preset associated with that preview cell loads into the MSG advanced editor in addition to being rendered in the main canvas.


    Here's a tip on Evolving and Editing MSG Presets.

      Thanks for the tip. One thing I notice, is that my msg adv editor does not have memory buttons as shown in the tip. I pasted a screen shot of my editor in this reply. I'm using version 4.04

    • just go to the studioartist preferences window and set the MSG Editor Memories to on:


    • Max - you are a genius. It's funny, because I used the preferences so change evolve to 4x4, but totally overlooked the MSG Editor Memories.
