PP&L How to copy layout and other settings to another computer?

My laptop died that I use to print from Professional Print & Layout.

I can access the hold hard drive as a USB drive and am trying to figure out where to find all my customized settings so I can move them to the new laptop.

Help is greatly appreciated!

I downloaded and installed PP&L before I realized it won't work with my printer.

You could look here (need to show hidden folders):

A similar path works for me with PSP.

Are you using a Mac or Windows PC?  For a Mac, always best to use Migration Assistant which should preserve all settings from one computer to the next.

old laptop was Win10, new laptop is Win11

What is Migration Assistant and will it work for my particular issue?

That's only if you have a Mac, which you don't.  Migration Assistant is a special application Apple created to make moving from one Mac to the next a seamless process.   I'm not familiar if there's any equivalent for Windows PCs.

I did copy the folder you referenced. However, after going back into the app, I had to do a little setup to be able to see layouts. I had to change the Layout Mode from Single Image to Multiple Images. Thanks!
