This blog post will be updated as and when Avid release new versions of Pro Tools.
The following table lists all versions of Pro Tools that have a compatibility issue with either EdiLoad v4 or v5 on macOS or Windows. Combinations that are 'Broken' must be avoided as these versions of Pro Tools do not allow specific keystrokes that are required.
|PT Version||EdiLoad v4 - Mac||EdiLoad v4 - Win||EdiLoad v5 - Mac||EdiLoad v5 - Win|
|PT2022.4||Workaround 01||Broken||Workaround 01||Broken|
NOTE: EdiLoad v4 will require Workaround 02 for PT2022.6 and all releases that follow. The latest version of Pro Tools to be tested with the EdiLoad v4 and v5 re-conform function is PT2022.12.
Workaround 01 for macOS
Required for PT2022.4 when using EdiLoad v4 or v5
Select the menu item: Setup > Keyboard Shortcuts… to open the new Pro Tools Keyboard Shortcuts window. In the search field enter 'with all auto' to display the following functions:

The key combinations for the commands 'Copy with All Automation Playlists' and 'Cut with All Automation Playlists' need to be updated. Double-click the 'Key Combination' field and press the following three keys on the keyboard:
- For 'Copy with All Automation Playlists' press: Command + Control + c
- For 'Cut with All Automation Playlists' press: Command + Control + x

Once your re-conform is complete, make sure to set these keyboard shortcuts back to their default settings by clicking the Reset buttons. We have noticed that this is required else other copy and cut functions will not work as expected. For example, with the work-around set, the clip name field will also require the modified copy and cut key combinations rather than the standard macOS Command + C/X, thereby breaking the EdiCue function that gets and sets the name of a clip while creating ADR cues.
Workaround 02 for macOS
Required for PT2022.6 and above when using EdiLoad v4
Select the menu item: Setup > Keyboard Shortcuts… to open the new Pro Tools Keyboard Shortcuts window. In the search field enter 'paste to current' to display the following functions:

The first 'Paste To Current Automation Type' shortcut has changed in Pro Tools 2022.6 and is not compatible with EdiLoad. The key combination required for this shortcut (Command + Control + v) is assigned to the second 'Paste To Current Automation Type' shortcut.
To workaround this, assign a new key combination to the second 'Paste To Current Automation Type' shortcut. This isn't used by EdiLoad, but allows us to assign the default key combination to the correct command. Now assign the Command + Control + v key combination to the first 'Paste To Current Automation Type' shortcut as follows:

With the keyboard shortcuts setup in this way, EdiLoad v4 will be able to re-conform your session. EdiLoad v5 users do not require this work-around.
