When I try to paste attributes in FCPX 10.0.6 instead of replacing the attribute it adds it. For example if I have a compressor on my audio track and I adjust the settings in one clip and I want to apply the settings to a different clip instead of pasting the compressor over rthe old one it adds a new compressor to the old one. In one case I ended up with 4 compressors on my clip that I had to manually deselect three of them. If I tried to delete one thay all go away. Before 10.0.6 I used to paste effects all the time but replaced everything. Now we can select what we want but it just seems to add the effects on to what is already there.


I can't find any documentation from Apple on pasting attributes or pasting effects.


Anybody have an idea how to make this work?

Final Cut Pro X, Mac OS X (10.7.3)
