I am running LRC on an iMac.  I would like to run a 2nd copy of LRC on a travel macbook.  All versions of LRC and Mac Operating system are current as of Aug 28 2020.

 

I do not want to share any photos (catalog) on the 2nd machine.  I will not run LRC at the same time on the two machines.  I don't and won't use any cloud features. 

 

I would like to take all settings ( keywords, print set ups, screen layouts etc) to the 2nd machine...no content just 'rules, look and feel'.  The SECONDARY need is for the transfer of presets and profiles

 

I will have a different catalog on this macbook, and if I ever need to merge them, I'll do that.  If they couldn't be merged, it would be ok.

Any advice how to copy rules without content.

 

Thanks

Going a bit backwards, yes you can easily merge the catalogs when you're ready. 

 

As far as screen layouts, what you get with Lr is what you get. There is no customization possible so it will have the same limitation/freedom on both.

 

Here's some info on exporting/importing keywords from LR-C:

And here's some info on doing the same with Presets:

Lastly, I think this might help you on the printing:

Hope these are what you're looking for, good luck!!

very nice links, but not applicable to question...Am just trying to mimic the screen look, flows. The 'skeleton' not the meat.

 

The site is a well known, great resource, but one that did not answer my question during my earlier surfing, prompting my question to the larger Adobe community

I really just wanted tips to not have to re-create export output instructions, hiding options like print, web, etc., default import directions, import file import locations/hierarchies... I just ended up redoing them, and will adjust others as they come up as one-offs. Thanks for your insights which are useful at another time.

See this link for copying all the support files to a new computer.

If you don't want the photos nor the catalog, you can skip those parts.

See a previous post for getting the old keywords transfered to the new machine.
