Copy User Libraries To Laptop

Recommended Posts

I am having issues with copying my user library to another PC (Laptop)  I have tried a couple ways. First using a flash drive, I go to docs then copy the entire Chief Architect Premier X7 Data folder.  Copy it to my laptop. I have coped over the existing folder on the laptop and also have tried deleting the complete date folder then copied the new data folder.  I have also copied it to  a network drive and copied.  Ive also tried to copy just the Database Library.  All folders copy over but I am missing most of the textures.  See attached screen print.  I need to keep my PC and laptop libraries the same.

I would recommend exporting the User Catalog to a .calibz file.

Then you can import it on the laptop.

 

This will ensure that you don't lose any referenced files along the way.

Is that possible ?  I thought only the individual folders or Objects within the User Library could be exported one by one...

If you shift-select all folders and objects in the User Catalog, you can export everything at once and save it into a single .calibz file.

Same principle is covered here:
