Transfer customized Keyboard Shortcuts to another Mac

Post by nikdom » Sun Jun 23, 2019 6:13 pm

I just installed Sibelius Ultimate on a new laptop. I'm trying to transfer my customized shortcuts over.
Any idea how to do that?

I assume I could just get the shortcut file out of the preferences folder and drop it into the new location but I'm not sure where it's located.
Any help is appreciated, thanks

I have the same problem. I'm happy that you already asked the question.
But there seems not to be a solution and information about this?

The Keyboard Shortcut Feature Set file is found in the Mac's User Library.
In this example, my shortcuts "Feature Set" file is called MySet.sfs

I forgot to mention - The User Library is hidden in some versions of MacOS.

As a new member, I'm not allowed to post a link on the forum yet, but search Google for mac show user library.

I use Terminal
chflags nohidden ~/Library/

Thanks for your reply.

I tried to post a link to another website. It was only my second post on this forum.

No problem! Many forums have this type of rule for new members - to protect against weird links.
