Hey All, is there a way to output your settings from 2021 and import them into 2022?  I just don't remember what I did going from 2020-2021.

V2020 is the original legacy version. It used "Preferences" for the settings and an older FPX file format. 

V2021 is a 100% rewrite of the code and User Interface and requires users to create a new "Options" file and translate the legacy FPX file to the new file format. 

V2022 uses the same data files as V2021. Just copy the "Options" and "FPX" files and over to the new V2022 folder. 

You can run V2021 and V2022 side by side until your files are copied over. Then you can uninstall V2021 if you want.
