Copying Notes/Patterns/Machines from THIS.caustic to THAT.caustic

Hey guys, I've searched around but I can't seem to find anything about it, but I could have overlooked it.
Wanted to know from experienced users, whether if there is a way to copy notes, patterns, and machines from one caustic file to another...

For example, I have a caustic file which I use to put my sudden flash of inspirations/ideas into(on the phone, lets call it THIS), and I already have an exisitng project I'm working on(on PC, lets call it THAT), is there a way to copy a pattern, or even the machine, from THIS to THAT? Or do I have no choice but to duplicate it manually?
I have been transferring my files back and forth on the phone and PC so that I have the latest file to work on hand, but there are times when I forget to do it, and when I am outside when the idea strikes, I have no choice but to do things manually later on.

Another similar question is, is it possible to copy a machine entirely(along with the patterns) within the same .caustic?
I can't seem to find a function for it. When I want to overlap two machines, I would just create a similar machine and copy the pattern into the other machine. Just wanted to know so that I can improve my workflow.. but if it doesn't exist, it's alright. It's already pretty darn amazing.

You can copy a single pattern

You can copy a single pattern from THIS to THAT but that's it. It's frustrating as I did put a feature request in many years ago to ask for import from other caustic file, so, patterns, machines, automation etc, but that never happened.

However, I think Mike has an app called Caustic Guide that solves this problem...

Hey Rob, thanks for sharing!

Hey Rob, thanks for sharing! Looks like I did overlook this post. It's amazing what it could do from the description and the tutorial, but unfortunately it has already been taken down from the app store. But at least I know it was something that was thought of, and still hopeful that it gets implemented again in the future.

Export the notes by exporting

Export the notes by exporting a midi file, after that export the preset of the machine...

I've never dealt with a midi

I've never dealt with a midi file before, but now I know.
I've always wondered what the .midi option is about...
Thanks for sharing!
