Summary0007416: Plugings copy paste of plugins (very!) challenging
DescriptionEvery time I try to push this 'copypasta' functionality to its ends, it's telling me to bugger off in the worst of ways.
0000001 When I use it with multiple plugins, it pulls me the plugins in another order than in the previous step (neither alphabetically, nor reversed (although it sometimes kinda look like it), I checked both)
#2 While playing, it just crashes ardour.
Steps To ReproduceSelf-explained in the description, I think ?
Don't hesitate to ask for more information, though.
Additional InformationUsed with mainly calf plugins but also some of the Gareus pack.
TagsNo tags attached.

1) The paste-order is the order in which you've selected the plugins.
Select the top-most, hold shift, select the bottom most then drag/drop preserves the order.

Now if that's a good thing is a different question.

2) I can't reproduce this. Could you get a backtrace of the crash? or state a recipe how to reliably reproduce this?

x42: the selecting, and drag+drop in mixer like you said works, though to me copying and pasting plug-ins always messes up order and it feels totally random to me.

What I do:

1. Click on a plug-in and shift+click on another to select all
2. Right click on one of the selected plug-ins and choose copy
3. Right click on another track's processor box and select paste
4. See the plug-ins are in a different order than on my original tracks

I would expect Ardour to not us the order I have selected the plug-ins in, but use their relative order in the stack I am copying them from.
Maybe it could be an option users can change?

It took me a while to understand this. It's only a problem when you paste pre-fader, or if there are already plugins on the target track.
