How do I copy preferences from a previous version?

Post by Pablo » Tue Jun 21, 2016 2:43 pm

Each version of Quick 'n Easy Web Builder has its own configuration and publish settings.
However you can copy settings from another version.

Warning: This requires some system knowledge!
Do not copy binary data from the configuration file to the new version because this may corrupt the configuration!


LINUX
Linux stores preferences in a (hidden) file:
/home/yourname/.Quick 'n Easy Web Builder 5
(note that this file is hidden so you will need to make it visible first)

MACOS
Mac stores preferences in:
/User/Library/Application Support/Quick 'n Easy Web Builder 5/Quick 'n Easy Web Builder 5 Preferences
for the Apple App Store version (sandboxed) the system uses:
/User/Library/Containers/com.pablosoftwaresolutions.quickandeasywebbuilder5/Data/Library/Application Support/Quick 'n Easy Web Builder 5/Quick 'n Easy Web Builder 5 Preferences

WINDOWS
Windows store preferences in the registry (regedit)
HKEY_CURRENT_USER\SOFTWARE\Pablo Software Solutions\Quick 'n Easy Web Builder 5

For older versions you will need to replace the '5' with the application's version number.

If you only need the publish settings then copy the following sections:

Code: Select all

[PublishLocations]
Count=2
[PublishLocation0]
... options ...
[PublishLocation1]
... options ...
etc
