Loading Ingest Variables from a different computer
« on: August 14, 2022, 02:08:01 PM »
I am trying to load ingest variables that I saved on a different computer to my desktop computer.  I copied the saved Ingest variable file from the other computer put it into the ingest dialogue settings folder on my desktop computer.  When I try to load the information, I click the thunderbolt and select manage snapshots.  I am taken to the appropriate folder and then I am not given any way to load the appropriate file.  Am I missing something obvious here?

Windows 11
PM 6.0 Build 6496

Thanks

Copy the snapshot file to the snapshot folder on the other computer and it will be listed in the snapshot menu.

I did what you said previously.  The picture is a snapshot of what I see when I try to load the file.  There is no load or other command that allows me to load the file into the ingest page.

What are you clicking on/choosing that causes a file picker dialog to appear?

Ok, I get it now.  I copied the wrong file.  I should've copied snap file.  It works now.

I was clicking on the Lightning bolt on the Ingest page.

Thanks
