Transporting preferences from one Mac to another

Post by Eckius » Sat Aug 03, 2019 7:11 am

Simple question, but I don't find the answer:

How do I transport all Bookends' preferences and settings from one computer to another, without iCloud and the like (which I don't use)?

You can move the Bookends Preferences file in the Application Support folder (or the whole folder). But if you do, you should click the button "Remove Arbitrary Attachment Folders", because preferences it may contain links to folders that aren't on the new Mac.

Thanks for the quick answer!

In the Home Library > Application Support there is a Bookends folder, yes, with a "Bookends Preferences" file. But I don't see a button "Remove Arbitrary Attachment Folders".

In Bookends, open preferences. You'll see it on the first tab.
