    Is it possible to copy preference files from one Mac to another, if so
    which files do I copy & from where. A cursory investigation didnt't
    indicate anything obvious.

    Thanks, Jason

  2. Preference files are in ~/Library/Preferences. Look for the files and
    folders with 'Adobe' and/or 'Photoshop' in their name, such as the
    'Adobe Photoshop CS2 Settings' folder.

    In general not a very good idea. Why do you want to do this? There may
    be a better way to achieve what you want.

    The problem I'm having is that EPS files saved on one machine are not
    opening on another machine. I've just found out, however, that the machine
    that is saving the files is running CS2 and the machine opening the files
    is running CS1, I think this is probably the root of the problem as all
    settings that I can see are identical on both. I've checked Google & the
    Adobe web site but I've had no luck so far, any ideas?

    Cheers, Jase.

  5. I'd say you may have uncovered the problem, which can be cured most
    likely by upgrading the machine with CS to CSII.

    I generally avoid migrating Prefs unless I am duplicating everything.
    IAE, you can create a supplemental plugins folder that may be useful.
