A new .ini variable is available in SONAR 8.3 to set the behavior of pasted clips when they belong to a group. The variable is CreateNewGroupsOnPaste and it goes in the [WinCake] section of the Cakewalk.ini file. The default setting is CreateNewGroupsOnPaste=1.
This setting applies when copying and pasting clips that are in a group. It also applies when CTRL + drag is used to copy clips. A new group will be created for the newly created clips if set to a value of '1'. This is the default behavior. If set to '0' the clips will be in the same group as the clips that were copied.
To change this setting:
- Click Options | Initialization File
- In the Option field type: CreateNewGroupsOnPaste
- In the Value field type either "1" or "0" for the desired behavior
- Click Set and then click Close.
