How can I move the Vectorworks Preferences file from Mac to PC?

Recommended Posts

I recently began using a Windows Vista machine again after experimenting with a Mac for about 5 months. I spent a lot of time setting up my user interface in the Preferences section on the Mac. Is there a way I can copy the Preferences file from one platform to the other? If so, where is that file stored on the Mac and where should I put it in Vista?

Thanks!

I would have thought this was a relatively easy process.

My answer was to reattach the old computer, open up the preferences file, and write by hand all of my settings, reattach the new computer, and manually change the preferences settings.

It is ... try exporting your ~/Library/ Preferences/com.apple.finder.plist

via Property List Editor.app > export as XML.

Islandmon, did you mean

net.nemeteschek.vectorworks.2009.plist

or

net.nemetschek.vectorworks.plist

rather than com.apple.finder.plist?
