Back Up Keywords Panel/ Structured Keywords Panel
« on: June 30, 2012, 07:02:35 PM »
What is the procedure for backing up the Master List in the Keywords Panel and the Structured Keywords Panel?  Where are these files saved to?

The location of preferences data varies by OS platform.  What OS are you running?

If you don't need to backup your preferences data directly then you can always use the Export button in the Keywords dialog to export the Master Keywords list to a text file (which you can later use the Import button to load the list back in) and in the Structured Keywords dialog and panel, you can use the Save button to export to a text file which can also be loaded later by using the Load button.

Joe,

The location will be like this:

C:\Users\<your login name>\AppData\Roaming\Camera Bits, Inc\Photo Mechanic\

The Structured Keywords file is: StructuredKeywords_UTF-8.txt
The Keywords are stored in the file named: com.camerabits.PhotoMechanic.prefs
