Backup SMPW Configu

Post by jesse.art » Mon Feb 01, 2021 4:41 am

Searching the boards I found answers for Windows users but not us fine Mac folk. Usually I can find them using the windows location as a guide but that hasn't been the case with my SMPW and before I start customizing this thing I need to make sure I can find the config files and back them up.

3Dconnexion really should have a user friendly way to do this via the app.

Go to the "3Dconnexion" pane in the System Preferences, click the pull-down menu and check if the "Export Configuration..." feature is what you're looking for. Make sure you verify if the feature works for you.

The "configuration" data is saved to ~/Library/Preferences/com.3dconnexion.mappings.plist

Boom! Thank you sir(or madam).

Exported and imported but now that I've imported I'm getting asked about replacing every custom function. Any way to bypass and just do a yes to all?

Wow. I went through and clicked yes or ok for what seemed to be about 100 dialogues.

That's not acceptable. We need to add a check box to allow the software to pick your last choice every time.
