Hello,

 

I'm trying to get my work keyboard shortcuts, which are synced to my work CC account from my work Mac, with my home CC account which is on my home PC. However, when I sync the settings and open a project, my work keyboard does not show up from the dropdown list. 

 

For reference, I am working with the most recent version of Premiere Pro CC on both machines.

 

Any ideas?

Hi,

 

First, take a look at this:

Second, there is a feature that many people are not aware of. 

When logged to an account you can log to an other account to retrieve your preferences.Look for the cloud icon on the left bottom of PPRO. you'll find it.

Hope it helps.

Thanks so much.

 

When I use the "Use Settings from a Different Account" option, nothing shows up in the keyboard dropdown. Also, nothing appears in Users\[user name]\Documents\Adobe\Premiere Pro\[version]\Profile-CreativeCloud-\Win\, which I guess makes sense since the settings are from my Mac.

 

When I try to simply copy the .kys file from my Mac (Users/[user name]/Documents/Adobe/Premiere Pro/[version]/Profile-username/Mac/) and drop it into the folder on my PC (Users\[user name]\Documents\Adobe\Premiere Pro\[version]\Profile-username\Win\), they do show up in the keyboard dropdown. However, when I select the keyboard I get the following error:

 

The shortcut key file [SHORTCUT FILE NAME] was created on another platform and is incompatable [sic] with this version of Premiere Pro

 

Are Mac and Windows settings not interchangeable? Do I need to recreate my Mac settings from scratch on my Windows machine?
