I just downloaded the new version of AE.
2 issues...


1. It wiped out my Saved Workspace. Is there any way to Export/Import to migrate workspaces from version to version

2. I was able to dock it in the previous version I was able to dock panel from File/Scripts into my Workspace.
In this version, it won't dock.

Hi kloy53,

Thanks for reaching out. the customized workspaces are saved as .xml files. You can copy the workspaces from one version to another. Have a look at this article: https://forums.creativecow.net/docs/forums/post.php?forumid=2&postid=1025885&univpostid=1025885&pvie...

Mac OS:  [drive]/Users/[user_name]/Library/Preferences/Adobe/After Effects/16.0/ModifiedWorkspaces

All you need to do is copy the content from the modified workspaces inside 16.0 folder and paste it to the same location inside 16.1 folder.

Note: After Effects should be closed while doing it.

Hope it'll help.

Thanks,

Shivangi

There are actually three Libraries on Mac.

1) OS X Library (for the system)

2) User Library (for all users)

3) Individual User Library.

Here is a screenshot that may help you to identify the folder I am talking about.

You may access this folder by following this method.

On the top Finder menu, Click on Go > Go to folder

Type this command: " ~/Library "

The Tilde(~) symbol is important for accessing the User Library.

Let me know if it works now.

Can you show how to do this on PC? It's really frustrating to feel apprehensive to update versions knowing it will cost me time because all my custom settings are wiped out.

Yes, you can do it on pc as well.

Just go to C:\Users\/[user_name]\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\After Effects\17.5(it may be different for you I am using ae 2020) 

There you will see  --( Modified Workspace ) copy this and save it to one of your drives and whenever you update your software just replace this Modified Workspace 

I hope I was able to explain correctly and that my message got across
