    How do you backup/export installed packages (from Art Supplies Forum)?

    Hello everyone and please excuse me if this question is in the incorrect place. I finally got a new laptop and wanted to export my current settings/packages that were installed from the art supplies forum (so I won't have to lurk through each of them all over again). I know when I go to file/edit/showinstalledpackages, I can see what was installed. Is there no way to transfer those files so I can export them to my laptop (from desktop)? When I look in the actual ArtRage program file, I don't see anything with the particular names found in the custom packages installed from the Art Supplies forum. I may have missed it though. Any assistance would be appreciated. Thank you in advance!

    Copy the ArtRage Custom Content Folder and contents on your old computer and paste to replace the (empty) Custom Content folder on the new computer.

    Oh God of homeless things, look down
    And try to ease the way
    Of all the little weary paws
    That walk the world
    today.

    Hi Enug! Thank you for getting back to me so quickly. Would you be able to assist in navigating on where to find the custom content folder?

    I went to program files/ambient design/artrage4/resources

    The only folders I see are:
    Canvases
    Custom Sizes
    Filters
    Gradients
    Grains
    Languages
    Patterns
    Pickers
    Samples
    Stencils
    Stickers
    Styles
    Tool Presets

    Thank you!

    After some serious lurking, I found a folder called ArtRage Paintings in my documents folder.

    It has a folder for Custom Content and Scripts. I opened a subfolder (ie canvas) and it has everything I downloaded from the art supplies thread.

    Thank you so much for your help! I appreciate it. <3

    Glad to hear you figured it out!

    You can also always find it by going to Tool > User Content > Open User Content Folder


    If you kept the original package files, you can copy those across and install them again, but it is usually easier to just copy all the resources at once.
