To do this code once, you will need to "source" in a common tcl file

In Post Builder:

"Output settings" tab

"Other options" tab

"user tcl source" block


My recommendation would be to

- use a specific "user" tcl for each post (e.g. if post name is "ABC123_mill_3x", set the user file to "ABC123_mill_3x_user")

- in that _specific_ file, use the tcl "source" command to source in the _common_ tcl code (one file shared by all posts)

- After adding the custom command (to call the common tcl proc) in one post, export it, then you can import in all your other posts.


Hope this helps...Ken
