There is but unfortunately there is a fault in the current version which causes an error.

However, usually this requires a lot of manual intervention anyway and, unless you are trying to convert to Titan and there are a large number of function ranges I don't think i't's worth it. Generally speaking if it's new or a complicated edit (for example adding ranges, palettes or macros) then I would start from scratch in Personality Builder and then generate .R20. For simple .R20 edits I would just use a text editor.

I am using classic pearl tiger and i already made some editing with text editor but i also need to edid the will mapping of the file. I guess i cannot do this with text editor. I believe i need to convert to D4 or do it from scratch is that right?

You can edit everything with a text editor. Personality Builder just makes some things easier such as function ranges and converting decimal to hexadecimal values for macros.

To repeat what I posted in your other thread:

It is the first two columns.

Column one is the attribute bank where 1-10 is the first page and 11-20 the second (ie. 1= dimmer on page one, 2= shutter on page one, 11= dimmer on page two).

Column two is the wheel where 1= wheel A and 61= wheel B.

Note that for the first attribute bank (ie. dimmer page 1) you can only assign to wheel A. Wheel B is invalid here. Maximum number of wheel slots 39.
