Hello !

I'm using vMix 4K 25 with two Stream Decks. The first allows me to switch between cameras, the second (the XL) regroups my images, videos, GT Titles etc...
So here's my problem : the show I'm working on has a lot of inputs, and is also divided in four parts. I would like to organize my Stream Deck XL in 4 pages, one per part, but I have to keep some functions over the pages. That's the case for the GT Titles used to name people. The problem is that each page of the Stream Deck generates a unique ID for each button. So the shortcuts to my titles work for the 1st page, but not on the next ones.

Is there any solution to assign multiple keys to the same function ? Or do I have to clone every single function and assign them the keys from each page ?

I don't know if I'm clear enough, sorry !

Hello,
Simply clone the desired shortcut and define a new key

PS: Tiens, un Français ;)

Tiens ! On ne doit pas être bien nombreux haha !

C'est justement mon problème : comme j'ai quatre pages et que je dois garder 7 raccourcis sur toutes, je vais me retrouver avec 28 raccourcis à créer ! C'est beaucoup et en cas de mise à jour du Stream Deck qui casse les raccourcis, il faut tout réassigner...
En attendant j'ai trouvé un genre de solution : j'ai créé une page seule avec ces fameux raccourcis. Puis sur chacune de mes 4 pages, j'ai créé un bouton qui renvoie vers cette page spécifique, avec un bouton "retour vers page XX" pour revenir en arrière. C'est pas fou mais ça marche.

In English :
That's what I want to avoid : I have to keep the same 7 shortcuts over 4 pages on the Stream Deck. If I clone them, I'll get 28 shortcuts, that's a lot ! Especially after a Stream Deck app update that breaks the shortcuts (it happened before), I would have to reassign each key one by one.
I found a workaround : I created a page on the Stream Deck containing the shortcuts I want to keep. On each page of the show itself, I created a button to this page and others to go back to the page I was.

C'est une parade en attendant mieux en effet.

Je trouve l'interface des raccourcis catastrophique. Il y a des demandes intéressantes d'évolution, mais rien ne bouge. Pour certaines demandes il a fallut attendre plusieurs versions majeures pour que ce soit pris en considération.

It's a parade while waiting for better indeed.

I find the shortcuts interface catastrophic. There are interesting requests for development, but nothing is moving. For some requests it was necessary to wait for several major versions for it to be taken into consideration.

Makes sence doesn't it, as you are using 28 different buttons basically of a streamdeck split over different pages
the workaround seems to be the best option so far

If you aren't using activators, use the web browser buttons with the web API (I recommend "localhost"), not the vMix buttons.

Select the option to do it in the background if you don't want a browser page opening every time.
