Thank you very much for your response, I appreciate the amount of thought and detail.
Before my response, I would like to say that the ability to import / export multiple tracks as archives is important to me; For the style of work I do, and the processing chains I need to hand, and I hope that others will agree that this is an important function of the programme if you like to save your processing to recall in different projects (almost like importing an effect)
*I am in Cubase PRO 9.0.1. It would be interesting to see if someone can replicate the problem in 9.0.2, as I checked the update details several days back and no detail of a fix is mentioned.
I had a look tonight to see if i could replicate the problem under the simplest conditions so that the specifics of the issue could be reviled. Here is what I found:
The problem occurs without any plugins on each channel, so it is an internal issue with cubase.
A Test to replicate the problem: Please bare with me here, it is a little complicated, but I fee it is reasonable to assume that this kind of routing structure is something that others may need to use at some point.
*The test requires 1 audio track (with a test audio file) and 5 group tracks (G1,2,3,5 and 5), routed in the following configuration:
Audio 1 track: Send1 to G1 (Pre fader) and Send2 to G2 (Pre fader)
G1 to G3
G2 to G4
G3 and G4 to G5
*Now that the routing is done, test audio, it should play through the groups as expected.
*Select all tracks (audio and groups), then File/Export/Tracks [Copy Media Files Option], save as ‘Test1’
*Now in the same Project, File/Import/Track Archive, open ‘Test 1’ in to the same project
There should now be the issues with routing:
*The imported audio track is not routing audio to its imported groups. It is however, sending it to the groups already in the project.
SEE SCREEN GRAB 1
*The Imported groups, although the look available in audio routing, are in fact impossible to connect to.
*If you re-name one of the imported groups, the name does not update on the audio routing selected.
SEE SCREEN GRAB 2
*I have checked that the audio routing problem isn’t influenced by track name duplication; If you rename all of the original tracks within the project before you importing the track archive (such as putting a ‘B’ in every group name, the same problems occur.
Here are links to the test files in which the problem can be seen, including the test audio file:

Is anyone able to replicate the problem?
