Merge Issue?

So this might be a weird bug or may be intentional?

I'm trying to write macros for some stuff and it's not working the way I think it should. So I tried doing it from the command line and it's doing the same thing.

I'm trying to copy a color palette to another one via merge.

If I touch a palette on screen, hit merge (physical console button) and then touch another palette it works perfectly.

However, if I type it in via key presses it doesn't. I type (all physical console buttons)

"Colour" 1 "Merge" "Colour" 50 "Enter"

It creates the palette but doesn't copy the info over.

Additionally, if I type

"Colour" 1 "Copy" (select merge softkey) "Colour" 50 "Enter"

It works fine.

The softkey thing isn't THAT big of an issue, except the softkeys 13-16 don't work via macros on the roadhog. At least as far as I can tell. Since those 4 are on a 2nd page.

Any advice for this?

    The merge key is used for merging programmer data into a cuelist or scene not for merging directory items.
    If you always want to merge the same colour palettes what you can do it make a macro like this: [Colour][1][copy][colour][2][Enter] pop up will appear in focus (blue outline) [right arrow][Enter] the right arrow enter will select merge and confirm your selection and then your data will merge without you having to scroll to the second page.
