    Wondering, has anyone else had trouble exporting shows to ASCII from ETC's Express Offline program. It always deletes the FX submasters when I export the show. I don't think I'm making some silly mistake because I asked an LD I know about it. He tried to export a show file (not the same one) with FX subs and it didn't work right either.

    ASCII is great for bare bones type of things. It does not work well for any type of effect or anything beyond the norm. It does strait cues and cross fades just fine, however it will not do multi part cues that are linked... blah blah blah. Basically, you are asking ASCII to do something that it was not designed to do. You will have to re-program those subs after you re-import the show.
