I really enjoy the new Favorites tab in the SnagIt editor; awesome.  I use SnagIt on two computers.  Is there a way to export/copy, or even sync, the Favorites across my two installations?

What versions of Windows do each have? Are both on a shared network?
My wife and I share our "username" folders which include "desktops",  "documents", "pictures", etc.
She doesn't use Snagit but . . we've both agreed that all pictures are saved to her pictures directory.
Windows 10 updates have been an up and down thrillers, but since 1809, networking has been pretty rock solid. So you won't have to export or import, just agree on a SHARED folder.

I am not talking about sharing captures, but the list of Favorites that you can now configure in 2019 version.  I have it installed on my work laptop, and my home desktop.  Windows 10.  Clearly different networks.  Even if I could copy a config file or registry entry, that would more accurate than manually trying to recreate them.

I'm guessing 1809 refers to a Windows version?

Because when I first saw that I was thinking, Dang, they have been working on Windows for much longer than I realized! LOL

Happy Sunday all...

Rick - Yes,Win 10 v 1809.
Amil - You should contact tech support and ask if "Favs" are saved in one or more transferable files. If not, request it as a new feature which I think 90% of all users would support.

The file you need is the "Favorites.json" file located here

C:\Users\UserName\AppData\Local\TechSmith\SnagIt

That is the file I copy over to my other machine.

If you can sync it between the computers all the better.

I think I get it, allow an end user to configure X, then hide X where he can't find it?
OK, I lied, I don't get it.
