    Posted: 16 Feb 2022 at 9:02am
Hello,

When I just upgraded from 2021 to 2022.02 and applied my options file I noticed my color preferences were wiped. I know the console options are separate from the master options file. Are they saved anywhere such that I can load them from my 2021 installation to restore them? I do not see an option for this in the GUI.

Thanks,
Chris

The CAD translator has also lost it's settings in conjunction with the upgrade. While this dialog has options for saving and restoring settings I don't see any way to specify a file to save or restore from. How do I preserve these settings on upgrade?

You have 2 Option files. 

Your personal Master.opt and ConsoleOptions.opt

Your color assignments are in Console Options.

I understand that part but I don't see were in the options dialog does it allows me to specify where my console options are separate from my master options? There's simply a File->Save with no deference to master vs. console file names and locations.

There is an Option user guide in PDF format on your computer in this folder:
