    Is it possible to create new user profile, and import previous settings?

    Everybody knows this one - every tech suppport contact usually begins with "have you created a new user profile", and while I understand the need for support to ensure user profile cruft isn't causing an issue, it's a nightmare request as to recreate all those little tweaks one makes to the UI, tools and workflow is next to impossible.

    Is it possible to create a new user profile that satisfies the requirements of cruft-elimination, and then import all one's previous settings,without screwing up this new profile with the problem all over again?   Without this ability, I am so frustrated with constantly creating new profiles.

    Yes of course. 

    Create the new user profile and confirm issue is resolved (if its not then possibly the old user profile isn't at fault)

    If the systems stable then use file open settings file.

    Along side your user settings screen.

    You can now drag from the old user file to your user settings.

    But you need to do it in sma batches and re test. Otherwise you risk dragging across the duff setting.

    Thanks Pat.  Not sure I understand this though?   Maybe it's cos I'm on 2022.4, but I don't see File > Open Settings File?  Or in the Preferences menu, I don't see a way to drag and drop anything?

    I'm on a system in the morning so will check. 

    But it's under one of the top menus while you have the user settings window open.

    I'm also on 2022 version but it's been there for ages.

    Aha!   Never noticed that the contents of the File menu changed when that was open - I think I can figure out from here, thank you so much Pat!
