Where does Dreamweaver store keyboard shortcuts?

I'd like to backup my custom keyboard shortcuts and import them in another setup. I can see that I can "Export as HTML", but don't see a matching "Import" button.
Syncrhonizing with the cloud is not an option as the keyboard shortcut file would be for a totally different setup.
If you can export, you should be able to import. Am I just overlooking the obvious?

As far as I know, there has never been an import function, which I always thought was weird. I think the HTML file is just supposed to help you see what changes you've made to your shortcuts so you can copy them in a new version manually.

Either way, you can find your custom keyboard shorcuts XML file by turning on your OS's hidden files and going here...

C > Users > your user name > AppData (normally hidden) > Roaming > Adobe > Dremweaver (your version) > your language > Configuration > Menus > C

C > Users > your user name > AppData (normally hidden) > Roaming > Adobe > Dremweaver (your version) > your language > Configuration > Menus > Custom Sets > your custom filename.xml

Once you copy that over to the same location on the second machine, you would need to activate it in the Keyboard Shortcuts dialogue screen by going to Edit > Keyboard Shortcuts > select the shortcuts file in the Current Set dropdown  .

Be careful though, I'm not sure what would happen if you brought over custom shortcuts from a much older version with different menu structures, say from CS6 Cloud to CC2021. That might cause issues.

Thanks Jon. That's exactly what I was looking for. I was looking throught the Configuration folder but missed the Custom Sets folder.
It's as much for sharing with fellow users, to make their lives easier, as it is for myself.

As john says if you want to do it manually, there is a folder in your dreamweaver configuration  folder : Menus\Custom Sets, in there you'll see an xml file with the name of your custom keyboard shortcut set. Keep it somewhere safe and you can copy and paste in that  same folder again in future..

Exactly. Among other, it's to be backed up remotely along with all my .ste files. 🙂
