Is it possible to manually edit Automap files?

It is possible to manually edit the automap file for any plug-in using the following steps;

1/. Save the mapping for the plug-in to an automap file somewhere on your system using the 'Save' option from the automap menu (accessed by clicking on the "File" menu of the Automap application).

2/. Load up that file in the text editor of your choice.

3/. Notice the structure of the file - in particular, the group names for the controls on the SL.

4/. Look for the control descriptions, which look like this:
<Param name="Cutoff" shortName="Cutoff" id="0" intStep="1"...

5/. You can then move these lines around to change the layout that the parameters will appear on the SL - just make sure to keep the number of <Param> structures in each <Group> the same (eight).

6/. Finally, save the .automap file and load it back up in your plug-in.

If all goes well the parameters will have moved to the places you set!
