Custom menus - new computer, new OS

Custom menus - new computer, new OS

I was formerly on Windows XP Pro. I'm using Windows 7 now.

I have a site with a CSS Menu that I customized the colors, and I also have customized the menu list items.

I need to edit the menu now on my new machine, so I need to copy over all the customization.

Can you give me the path for XP where I could find these color and menu settings, and the path on Windows 7 where they need to be copied to?

I hope I made sense?!

Regards,
Fergie

If you saved the menu contents and themes as presets, then on your old machine using the preset manager, you can select: CSSMenuWriter - Menu Contents and CSSMenuWriter - Menu Themes and then export each (as a zip file).

You can then import them on your new machine.

Thank you, Neilo!

I can still log into my old computer, though it's just a separate drive in my new computer now.

But out of curiosity (and a little bit of laziness), if I wanted to stay logged into Windows 7, could I *import* them using the Preset Manager?

I can restart and log back into my old OS if I have to, but I would also like to get a little more familiar with where things are stored in Windows 7.

Hiya Julie,

If your PC is now a dual-boot machine, then I guess you would have to be in your old OS in order to export the preset in the first place, but you would then be able to easily access it to import when you are loggen in to 7.

The files for the presets can (I think) be found:

CS4:

C:\Users\your_user_name\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Dreamweaver CS4\en_US\Configuration\Shared\WebAssist\CSSMenuWriter\presets

CS3:

C:\Users\Neil\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\Dreamweaver 9\Configuration\Shared\WebAssist\CSSMenuWriter\presets

I should imagine you could just copy the folder(s) over.

Thank you so much for your help!

The path information was exactly what I needed. I have the files imported, and all seems to be working fine.
