Hello,

 

I've just installed Audition and Audition Beta on a new Windows 10 desktop, and although I've been to:

 

C:\Users\'Username'\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Audition [or Audition (Beta)]\ 

 

...on my old computer and copied the relevant folders and then pasted them into the directory on the new computer, the only thing that seems to have migrated over is my custom workspace. None of my presets are there, none of my favorites are there, and none of my keyboard shortcuts are there.

 

Am I missing something? Surely there is a way to move all those things over when I install Audition on a new machine?

 

Thanks,

Brian

To a degree it's possible to do additions to existing folders for other preferences, but it involves editing the .xml files, and isn't for the faint-hearted!

Thank you Steve! Not only did that do the trick, but I was able to use the same procedure to migrate the settings, etc. that I currently have in Audition Beta over to Audition, which I've been meaning to do for a while but wasn't sure if it was possible.

 

Thanks again - I sincerely appreciate your help.
