My own include scripts

Is there a way to include my own copy scripts inside of a higher level backup script? I can see that SD allows me to do that, but when I go to run the higher level backup script it complains that the included script can't be found inside the SD.app/Contents/...

I don't want to have to modify the contents of the SD app because I don't want to lose my customizations when I upgrade SD in the future.

so where can I place my own copy scripts which can then be included in other higher level copy scripts? I wish to have several different high level backup scripts that share a common list of excluded files, basically.

I think I might have figured it out, by editing the .dset XML code directly I can put the full path name to

Code:
Library/Application Support/Super Duper!/Copy Scripts/myincludescript.dset
which seems to be working. Is there no way to do this in the GUI, only through editing the xml file? When I load the copy script in the GUI it does display the entire path name correctly. seems like if I choose an include script to use with a full path, SD ought to just remember that.

So...the include tab is forcing the path to the standard scripts folder, even though you add it from Copy Scripts (the parent folder)?

In the GUI when I open a copy script and then go to the include tab and then hit the + button, it opens up the file dialog to

Code:
~/Library/Application Support/SuperDuper!/Copy Scripts/
I then choose a script and it accepts it, and I see it listed in the list of includes. However when I run the backup I get the following error:

Code:
| 01:44:52 PM | Error | SDCopy: Unable to locate included copy script: xyzExcludeAlways.dset in /Applications/SuperDuper!.app/Contents/Resources
| 01:44:52 PM | Error | : No such file or directory
So then I tried to manually edit the dset file so that I can specify more of a full path name. I see that what is there when I configured via the GUI is not the full explicit path name, just the base name, I guess its assuming to find it in Standard Scripts.

So I tried to set it like this with full explicit path name in the dset file directly:
Code:
	<key>Include Directives</key>
	<array>
		<string>Backup - all files.dset</string>
		<string>/Users/xyz/Library/Application Support/SuperDuper!/Copy Scripts/xyzExcludeLists/xyzExcludeAlways.dset</string>
	</array>
The above appears to work. When I go back to the GUI to view the copy script, it does display the whole explicit path name exactly as contained in the XML.

Interesting. Clearly a bug, I'm sure there since day 1 - I'll get it logged. Thanks.
