Yes, there it is, found it, many thanks.

I just exported and then imported to another Scrivener my settings (stored in a *.prefs file) with this option

but some settings do not seem to be imported / exported e.g. the tool bars / buttons. How could one transfer them?

Specifying the versions of Scrivener will help us, help you.

Well, would not have thought that. Scrivener for Win., 1.9.8. / 1.9.7.

I haven’t found a way in Win Scriv to save/restore toolbar settings, so I take a screenshot of old and rebuild by hand in new, which is a pain but always takes less time to do then I think it will. :slight_smile:

I’m interested to learn if anyone’s got a better way.

Thank you JimRac.

Actually I cannot imagine there is no way to import / export them.

And yet, there is no way in that version. It might be coming in version 3.0 if the layout manager includes the toolbar information, but in 1.x there are settings that are not included.

Very strange, alright, many thanks.
