In special situations it may be useful to specifically backup or restore your Nisus Writer settings and preferences. Most of the time this is not necessary as settings are maintained automatically, and should be preserved by other types of backup strategies (eg: Apple's Time Machine).


How to backup Nisus Writer settings:
1. Quit Nisus Writer if it is running.
2. Open the Terminal application.
3. Enter the following command to create a backup folder on your Desktop:
Code:
mkdir ~/Desktop/NisusSettings
4. Enter the following command to export your preferences to the backup folder:
Code:
defaults export com.nisus.NisusWriter ~/Desktop/NisusSettings/defaults.plist
5. Enter the following command to copy application settings to the backup folder:
Code:
cp -R ~/Library/Containers/com.nisus.NisusWriter/Data/Library/Application\ Support/Nisus\ Writer\ Pro/ ~/Desktop/NisusSettings/Application\ Support

All of Nisus Writer's preferences and settings have now been duplicated to the NisusSettings folder on your Desktop.



How to restore Nisus Writer settings:
If you followed the instructions above earlier, here's how to restore the previously exported settings. These instructions assume the backup settings are still located in the NisusSettings folder on your Desktop.

1. Quit Nisus Writer if it is running.
2. Open the Terminal application.
3. Enter the following command to restore application settings:
Code:
cp -R ~/Desktop/NisusSettings/Application\ Support/ ~/Library/Containers/com.nisus.NisusWriter/Data/Library/Application\ Support/Nisus\ Writer\ Pro/
4. Enter the following command to import your preferences:
Code:
defaults import com.nisus.NisusWriter ~/Desktop/NisusSettings/defaults.plist
5. Restart your computer.

If you now launch Nisus Writer, all your settings should have been restored.
