Copy assets, styles, preferences to another computer or project


Recommended Posts

Is there a way to copy styles, assets or preferences to another computer or even between affinity apps? A pdf preference I saved for a publisher for example. Right now it seems we have to recreate it in each program and when we got from desktop, to laptop to iPad. I would be great i there is way to save assets so they can be used in a new project as well, very  time saving. This might all be existing already, but I just don't know about it!

I found that the assets and styles can get quite big and wondered whether these are have affect on my PC performance. I tend to now keep my styles and assets on a cloud drive and import, export and delete them as I go along, just keep essentials in each program. Not tried directly copying in to the profiles which on windows are on the app data folder, sure someone may come up with a better solution. But I believe you cannot direct each program to a shared resource for them

PC or Mac?  On macOS I just export to iCloud and import on iPad or iMac.  I guess same is true, different directory or Cloud service.

I guess for now I will recreating what i need for each app. Export preferences in particular would be really handy if they could transferred easily for me. 

They are easily transferred on the PC, but since you mentioned iPad I'll guess that you're on a Mac, and I think they're less easily transferred there.

I am in a mac as you guessed walt. Cecil, what do you export? I could see making a file with the assets to export, but I do not see a way to export styles or preferences to be used elsewhere. Like i said i could just be missing it.
