How to move your pdfToolbox settings to another machine?


This article explains how you can move or copy your pdfToolbox settings to another computer.


  1. First of all, make sure the new computer has the same ICC profiles installed as the current one.

    Your pdfToolbox settings are stored in the following location:

    Windows XP and Windows Vista:
    C:\Documents and settings\USERNAME\Application data\callas software\callas pdfToolbox 8

    Windows 7:
    C:\Users\USERNAME\AppData\Roaming\callas software\callas pdfToolbox 8

    Mac OS X:
    /Users/USERNAME/Library/Preferences/callas software/callas pdfToolbox 8

  2. Replace "USERNAME" in the path above with your username, and copy the contents of this folder to the same location on other computer.

Note when using Mac OS X

As of Mac OS X 10.7 the user Library folder is hidden by default. You can make this folder visible in the Finder by running the following terminal command first:
chflags nohidden ~/Library
