Migrating Designer V1-V2 - Can't find Layout or Studio Presets in V2


Recommended Posts

Hello,

I am currently migrating my Designer 1 to V2. Everything went smoothly.

My brushes and assets moved over automaticallyūüéČ. ¬†However, My Layout Presets and Studio Presets did not move to V2. ¬†

  • How do I get them to be accessible in V2? ¬†
  • Why did some things move automatically and other did not ?

Thanks for your help!

V2 does not copy everything over, including the Studio Presets. (I'm not sure what you mean by Layout presets.)

I'm not sure Serif Staff have ever explained why, but some of us think that some areas changed enough that migrating the information was difficult.

It might be possible to copy some internal files from V1 to V2 to migrate the missing information, but that's not necessarily safe given the reorganization that has happened, and the data that is now shared between the applications.

Thank You Walt for the reply,

By layout presets I meant  the page set up ie: 12" x12", RGB, 300 dpi 

I have quite a few and it will be very time consuming to redo manually.  Are they stored in a file in V1 that can be brought over to V2?

Thanks.

What OS are you using?

I'm not sure whether those presets are compatible between V1 and V2, but given the changes that were made to the document presets list and the way they are defined, I strongly suspect they aren't compatible, and that moving the file from V1 to V2 would cause problems.

Hi,  Today I went to redo all my presets into V2 and found they DID copy over - Listed under My presets in V2. 

My question now: Is it possible to get the grid layout as in Designer 1 ? It now just shows a list view of the presets. I prefer the Visual version.
