As I posted yesterday, an ICE compound with no category and no task will not show up in the Preset Manager. Here’s a Python script that checks .xsicompound files and reports any that are missing both the category and tasks attributes.
I use ElementTree to parse the .xsicompound XML, and get the category and tasks attributes from the xsi_file element, which looks something like this:
<xsi_file type="CompoundNode" name="abScatter" author="Andreas Bystrom" url="http://www.wurp.net" formatversion="1.4" compoundversion="1.0" constructionmode="Modeling" backgroundcolor="7765887">
Here’s the script.
