I've just upgraded to Framemaker 2015.  I can't seem to find how to load my saved work space from the previous version.  Is there a way to load my old work space?

I think you might be able to copy your old one(s) from the hidden folder C:\Users\user_name\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\FrameMaker\version#\WorkSpaces\ to the new version’s location. They’re stored as .cfws files I think.

Thanks Jeff.  I moved the files, but now I can't see the work spaces I moved.

I don’t have access to a FM2015 install right now, but are the existing workspaces still .cfws files or did the name change?

There is a .fws and a .cfws file under the work space name.

Are the new ones the .cfws ones? I forget – it think they used to be .fws – did you restart FM after copying?

I did restart several time.  Even tried changing if I was in Structured or Unstructured.

Try creating a new one with a funky name & then have a look at it via Explorer. If you open up either the .cfws or .fws files, they just look like an XML file to me.

It looks like the .fws is the saved work space and the .cfws is an archived file.  Creating a funky name helped me find the correct folder to place the correct .fws file in.
