Hey Alan, thanks for the feedback!
I've had this experience myself and it's not fun trying to copy all the settings to the plugin, sometimes I've also resorted to using Soundflower to route audio from the standalone to a DAW - https://rogueamoeba.com/freebies/soundflower/
This is a good idea for a feature though, I'll raise it with the rest of the team.
Thanks for the Soundflower tip! -a
