Preserving layout templates in clean installation

How can I reinstall Dorico 5 while preserving the layout templates that were created before?

Your template files, along with all your saved default options, preferences, playback Templates, etc, all reside in one folder.

On a Mac, it’s [user]/Library/Application Support/Steinberg/Dorico 5/

On Windows, it’s %APPDATA%\Steinberg\Dorico 5\

If this is a “clean” install (e.g. you’ve wiped the entire disk or all the user content), then you’ll need to restore those folders.

And no doubt there are other preferences and configurations from other apps that you’ll want to restore. Of course, the more you put back, the less of a clean install it becomes!

Thx for the fast reply

Please tag Ben’s message as the solution, not your thanks to him: it’s always disturbing as a reader to see this kind of “solution” under the original post
