Extract old Fixture Builder profile to import

I built a profile for a Magic Box lazer with all it's macros on the Hog3 system. We have since upgraded to the Hog4 platform.

Is there a way to extract the User Created profile from my old show, so that I can keep that library file on hand so I can import it into future shows?

    Yes simply "Merge" the data from your old H3 show into your H4 show.
    This can be done selectively, or you can choose to delete all unnecessary data from your H3 show before the Merge and then Merge everything remaining in.

    Merging it messes up the patching. I want to be able to load just the library file on future shows. Not have to go though the headache of Merge Replace/Append, and having to re-patch fixtures that the merge messed up.

    There is no need to do all of the functions unless you really need to.
    You do have the option of simply Merging in the profile itself and nothing else.
    Merge should not interfere with existing Patch in any way.
    "Incoming" Patch is removed/stripped from the Source, but will not/should not change existing "Destination" Patch data.
