Every once in a while, a new computer has to be set up from scratch. It’s frustrating to hunt down all the various preference files in different directories. This costs so much time doing this for each software after a clean install. I’m literally busy 3 days in a row after I set up a new computer, just to install all software, patches, copy protection, libraries and especially hunt down settings or re-create them if I can’t find them.
**Suggestion:**It would be nice if Nuendo would have a function of either saving all its user preset in the user’s document folder somewhere, as more and more software got around to do. This way, it’s backed up and always there. Just copy it over to the new machine and the new Nuendo will again look for all settings in the user’s document folder.
Or have some function of consolidating and zipping all config files. So when a new install comes along, just point a setting importer function to that zip file and every color, every tool setting, every preference is back how it was.
I know it’s not sexy, I know users only do this once every few years, but this one time is so annoying and such a function would go a long way.
(I had this request in a monolithic request post but I realized nobody could comment sensibly in any way so I broke it out. Maybe I’ll see that way what makes sense and people +1 and what doesn’t make sense. Sorry for the hassle.)
