    So how do you copy a row, or several rows, from one sequence to another?

    Guessing have to have 2 copies of xLights running but it doesn't seem to let me copy/paste from one to the other?

    Help would be appreciated.

    Control-c and Control-v should work right away. If you're trying to use the menus then Paste will be greyed out until you do a copy in that instance of xLights. The program wasn't written to work with multiple copies running like that so you gotta trick it. Lets say you want to copy from xLights instance A to xLights instance B. Goto instance B and do a Copy Row operation (I can't remember if that requires there to be at least 1 effect on the row so keep that in mind if it doesn't work). Doing that copy will cause the Paste Row menu item to be active now. So goto instance A and do the real Copy Row you want to do and then in instance B you can now do the Paste Row. If you are doing block copies the same technique works.
