I am moving from Windows 7 to Windows 10 and have installed SnagIt in the new environment. I am missing all of my custom Quick Effects. How do I export the Quick Effects from my old PC or can someone point me to the file or reg key that contains these settings so I can manually back them up? I use these settings all the time in documentation and really don't want to try to recreate them.

I keep a snag file like this with things like callouts with the text size and color

Praise be!!! That worked. I had actually copied out the DrawQuickStyles.xml and the ImageQuickStyles.xml files before but I suspect maybe the process was still running. This time I exited out of the app and made sure the processes weren't running and then copied all of the .xml files from my old AppData folder to the new location. Success! Thanks again!!
