How to export settings to another computer?

Hi all.

Sorry, but I do not speak English, so I use Google Translator services.

Using Calibre for quite some time to organize my collection of ebooks from a laptop, keeping it constantly updated to its latest version.
Naturally, over time, I have been customizing their appearance, adding columns, changing colors, etc. And I've applied these changes to all my ebooks, which are many.

Now I installed the program to a desktop PC, but do not know how to import all the settings you made​​, both in caliber as in the books indexed in it.

Can you help me? Thank you.

To install Calibre on another computer, I install Calibre and after that I copy the Settings Folder to the new computer.
Almost everything is there but I miss 2 settings
- the Plugboards Metadata is empty
and
- The Column coloring ist missing. All columns are black

Are these settings stored on another place ?

column coloring settings are stored per library (i.e. in the metadata.db file of each calibre library, as different libraries can have different columns). I dont recall what the del with metadata plugboards is.

Just where is the settings Folder. I have looked throughout the calibre folder and have not found it. Thanks,

@crutledge,

When you tried to post, you should've seen the following warning:

Old Thread Warning
This thread is quite old and may contain outdated information. We recommend that you begin a new discussion if you like to talk about a similar topic. Of course, you may also proceed and reply here.
Please do not perform acts of necromancy on an old thread without a very good reason.

From calibre 2.47, see: http://manual.calibre-ebook.com/faq....ter-to-another

This is a good example of when necrobumping an old thread results in discussion about something that is no longer an issue.

@eschwartz - knowing where one's property is is always an issue - whether it be a clean pair of underpants or the calibre configuration data. It belongs to me, or crutledge in this case, not some corporation or person in Seattle, Cupertino or Mumbai - and especially not to some officious geek like thee.

BR
