    Moving computers

    Got a new computer… and all the joys that comes with it…

    Got Blue beam license migrated.

    Question.. Is there a way to export/move my categories /Pinned file names/locations over to new computer. Does not appear to transport with profile export /import..

    I use it extensively … and it will be a major Pain to manually recreate. Couldnt find anything in help.. about where this info is archived….

    Just want the pinned… don’t want or expect the recents of history to transfer…

    I still have access the the old computer…

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Great question @sss78132

    I learned the hard way that when you “Clear Resents” it actaully clears all the pinned categories also. Very frustrating. At a minimum, I’m glad you still have the old computer to reference, I had to build mine back by memory.

    I don’t know of a way to save and share these, but I wonder if you are signed into Revu 21 if it would still be there when you sign in on the new computer. For some reason I doubt it.

    Wish I had more advice. Right-click “open folder” will be your freind to locate all the files again.

      IDK about 21…. still running 2020 Extreme…

      Haven’t upgraded yet..

      They are still active in old 20 copy though, even after lifting the license..

    Hmm so the pinned files are stored here: C:\Users\(you)\AppData\Roaming\Bluebeam Software\Revu\21\RdbPinnedFiles.dat

    I wonder if you could just copy this file over and replace the one in the folder? I have not played with it but maybe someone else has.

      As a side note, there is also the Recent files data there too, as well as one thats labeled “RdbFileAccess”. Maybe that last one has your categories?
