Export IPTC Lists
« on: November 03, 2013, 07:34:48 AM »
Hello,

I just reinstalled my PC with a clean install of Win 8.1 (x64). Before I exported all my Photo Mechanic 5.0, build 15011 settings and imported them after the new install. Something that is missing now are the IPTC lists. I tried exporting on my laptop but had to realize that only one list can be exported at the time.

Is there a possibility to export and then import all lists at once?

Regards,
Oliver

You should be able to do that via the Export and Import buttons in the Preferences dialog.  (They're at the bottom.)

Thank you, Kirk.

You are talking about the Import Export buttons in the "Edit IPTC List" dialogue? That's what I tried. It exports only the list that I choose in the rolldown menu.

No, in the main Preferences dialog.

Now I understand. Thank you Kirk. I have had the problem in the past that not all preferences were exported. Will try again :-)
