Moving settings and data to new mac
« on: October 16, 2007, 12:14:17 PM »
I'm moving into a new(er) mac - how can I transfer all the stored information - cities etc- that is in PM to the new computer?

Most settings are in the com.camerabits.PhotoMechanic.plist file which can be found in the following path:

/Users/<your account name>/Library/Preferences/com.camerabits.PhotoMechanic.plist

All of the Snapshots are located here:

/Users/<your account name>/Library/Preferences/com.camerabits.PhotoMechanic/

So if you copy the plist file and the folders contained in the above folder you'll have all but the registration information which I recommend that you just re-enter on your new Mac.

HTH,
