Where can I find my custom presets?


I switched Macs and for a variety of reasons I needed to start my new Mac afresh. I’ve been selectively copying things over from my old Time Machine backup. Had I known it would make things easier, I would have exported my compile presets first… but I didn’t.

Where does Scrivener store those so that I can dig them back up from my backup? I didn’t see anything in Library/Application Support and I saw two Scrivener plist files in Library/Preferences but they didn’t appear to have anything related.


Try Library/Application Support/Scrivener/Compile Settings.

If you are using the App Store version of Scrivener, note that this directory will be at the end of a long and complicated path, something like
/Users/[username]/Library/Containers/com.literatureandlatte.scrivener2/Data/Library/Application Support/Scrivener

Thank you for using Scrivener,
