If you have a project with multiple presets and the position of your mapping object or the projector is moved, do you just have to realign every preset? Is there a way to realign the first preset and have the fixed/updated quad positions track through the presets or better yet have a master quad positioning that effects the whole project?
This is severely affecting my use of this software as I have a project of about 30 presets for a show however performer may move the projection object while on top of them. I happy to realign one preset at the begining of each show but was really surprised when i went to the next preset to find the quad sprung back to their original saved state.
This means I am spending hours prior to each show repeating the same realignment over and over again in order to ensure consistency from patch to patch.
ANY help would be greatly appreciated.

What do you change between each preset ?

The presets are very useful because you can trigger the scenes... I use the presets a lot.
Meanwhile, I found a solution, I don't know if this is good four you but.. this work for me.
Make a Group with all the Quads into it.
when you get all the quads, yo can move them (group selected)
if you need adjustments press ALT and move the corners with the mouse.
Now, the problem is how trigger the scenes. (Mute the specific quads when you don't need them).
I do it with a OSC timeline app.

Only for curiosity.
How many Quads can be repeated ... necessarily?
If the scenes share position of the images, you only need to map with a Quad where it is needed.
And obviously select and play the multimedia file from wherever the scene requires it.
All with a simple play button, or some midi note.
Well, I only give ideas, in order to help, I do not know what the structure of your show is like. I hope you find an easy solution to your need.
