    Default Vixen 2.1.1.0 Profiles Question

    Thanks in advance. I want to copy a profile to make some changes without damaging the original. I think I did the same thing years ago but don't remember how. I don't see any way to copy when in the profile and the profile folder under Copy Data is empty. Any help would be appreciated.

    If I remember right, I just copied the whole directory (programs and all) to different directory and starting messing around being very cognizant of which directory I was opening up.

    You could also open the first profile, then save it as a different name. Just remember which is which.

    If you're just looking to make a backup of it for safe keeping, the file is under the Vixen>Profiles folder. It will be named whatever your profile name is. You can just copy that file to another directory. What I usually do is I just add a "backups" folder under the profiles folder and copy all the profile files into the folder every once in awhile.

    Thanks. I had to copy and paste then rename from the Profiles folder in My Documents in My Computer. For some reason I thought I had done it years ago with the Copy Data function under Tools in Vixen. Now to drive myself crazy rearranging output channels for the next adventure.
