how to Save settings before re-installing

Postby lise on Mon Nov 12, 2018 1:41 pm

Something got corrupt in Capture and I have to uninstall/re-install, but I would like to preserve as many of my custom settings as possible (profiles, custom boxes, whatever). The thing is I can't load Capture to find out where these settings might be saved.

I'm running windows 10. Can anyone tell me what files I should backup before re-installing?

IIRC, custom palettes are typically stored in the C:\Users\{username}\Documents\My Palettes folder and profiles are stored in C:\Users\{username}\Documents\My Profiles folder.

If you don't find them, check your Public Documents. Worst case scenario, search your computer for *.capal (palette) and *.capro (profile) files.

Hope this helps!
