Copy prefs (hotkeys) from one install to another?
« on: September 20, 2011, 04:17:08 PM »

I'm in the (long drawn out) process of migrating (finally) from XP to Win 7 64-bit.  I would like to reproduce my comfortable C1 environment in the new install.  Is there an easy way to copy and paste my preferences settings, particularly hotkeys, from the old to the new?

Hi,

You can perhaps disclose the recipe, and let some else translate it to windozee?!"

Best regards
Erik

Okay. First, you need to add a custom set name to the hot key menu to create the settings folder you are going to move thee files into on the new Mac. In Mac, the files are located under User>Library>Application Support>Capture One>Keyboard Shortcuts. In Keyboard Shortcuts you copy the custom.plist  files in that folder into the same folder on the new system.  

Hope that helps!

Thanks!

Unfortunately I don't know how to translate the recipe to windozee, a language I don't speak very well ;-)

Best regards

Thanks guys.  That's a good clue at least.  I'll see if I can work with it.

Cheers,

On Windows your custom keyboard set is stored as an .xml file in:

C:/users/<your username>/AppData/Local/CaptureOne/CustomCommands/<whateveryounamedit.xml>

Just move this to the same directory on the new installation.
