RNBO Export Sidebar Overview

The RNBO Export Sidebar allows you to configure and export your code to the platform of your choice.

The Export Sidebar

The export sidebar button is located in the right toolbar of all RNBO patchers.

Clicking on the icon opens the sidebar to the Target List window and allows you to see all available targets. Here you can configure and export your RNBO code to a selected target.

Target Export List

By default, the sidebar opens to the Target Export List, which shows all available targets by category.

If you do not see the target you are expecting to see listed, double check your physical and network connections, then click on the Target List icon on the bottom left of the sidebar window. You can also click the Show Target List icon to return to the list from the target configuration view.

Double-click on a target in the list to enter the Target Export Configuration panel.

Target Configuration

The Target Configuration Panel has three sections: Info, Configuration, and the Export Log Console.


The info section is read-only and shows the Name and a description of the selected target.\


The configuration section allows you to set export configuration options for your selected target. Options here vary according to each target.

Note that you are required to specify the name for the exported code file or your export will fail to start.

Export Log Console

The export log console displays messages and any errors during the export process. It also includes a progress bar indicating the progress of the export and a button to copy the content of the export log.

Once your Target is configured, click on the Export to Selected Target button to export your code to the selected target.

If you want to stop or cancel the export process after you have clicked the Export to Selected Target button, clicking the button at the bottom-left corner of the export log console should cancel the current export process.

For more information on target configurations, see the documentation for your specific target.
