If I cool the shots in sunshine almost the whole way to the right they match the clouded shots.

That is why I wanted to save the slider across all the other relevant raws.
Then I would take those into the queue/ Open the editor, and manually set the WB and apply to all

Thanks Fred.

I always start with the pipette dropper and WB. I have done it two hundred and fifty times today on two more recent shoots!!

After a shoot a week agon I have a sequence of shots of bowls on grass. Half of the time it was sunny and half of the time there was cloud.

Doing it your way produces grass of two different shades of grass.

If I cool the shots in sunshine almost the whole way to the right they match the clouded shots.

That is why I wanted to save the slider across all the other relevant raws.

So the way to achieve a change across a batch of files is to put them in a queue, apply a warm/cool adjustment in edit and then apply that to the whole queue?

Tony
No, Your first WB should be the WB Button in refine. Click the button icon and the cursor becomes an eye dropper. As you move it to a likely sample of gray or white, you can read the RGB values and make a smart choice.
So I have many sequential shots of Sarasota Bay, and I select my WB sample and apply it to all in the sequence.

Has this always been the case or am I doing something wrong?

Thanks for any advice coming.
As per Mike, this is intentional.
It has to do with the WB slider being a different approach from the click setting. 
The slider uses the individual image WB and adjusts over that. The click method uses a set of selected RGB values.
To Clarify, If you moved the WB slider to achieve a certain hue,  applying that slider setting to the series of images will not necessarily get the same results.
Maybe Mike will drop in to do a better job.

Good morning gentlemen,

I've just discovered that if I select a batch of RAW files and warm or cool the White Balance with the slider I cannot copy that slider movement across the remainder of the batch.

1. I select a batch of RAWs.

2. I make the White Balance warmer or cooler with the slider.

3. I click white balance in the 'copy' box at the top right

4. I click the 'save' box at the bottom left

5. Only the one RAW I have worked on gets the new slider. All the others are centred at zero.

Has this always been the case or am I doing something wrong?

Thanks for any advice coming.

Tony

I have Qimage Ultimate 2019 on Windows 10 and printing on my Epson 9900. I have so many different media sizes that going through the list is very annoying as they are not organized.

I have tried to use the EDIT>PREFERENCES>MEDIA SIZE SORTING and no luck.

How can I organize these custom media sizes by Media width?
Dear sir,
I assume you are referring to saved printer setups with various sizes  and types of paper.
Media sizes refers to the sizes of paper choices that come with the driver.

Open the list of saved printer setups, and right click. You get a RENAME option. Rename the setups by width. i.e 44 x 24 Epson Luster.
17 x 22 Epson matte and so on...
See screen snaps

I have a new desktop and need to move/install my Qimage to it. How is that done?
I assume you mean a new desktop computer. Simply place the latest install file in there and double click.
If you didn't save the install file and need a new copy, just go to this location, http://www.ddisoftware.com/qimage-u/downloads.htm
and proceed from there to get a fresh copy.
Fred
