How to Import Keywords

Post by kaymann »

Did we ever figure out how to Import our Keyword collection.

They have provided an export feature but no import...

Do we know where they are stored?

Can we tweek something to get them back in.

I beta alot of hardware and reinstall Win 7 and Linux often enough that I would like to get this simplified.
If I could import them I would organize them offline then import as the manager is ridiculous.

In Linux, they're in ~/.AfterShotPro/locale/
...where ~ is equivalent to /home/<user name>

If you are on Windows, this might be something like C:\Documents and settings (or Users)\<your name>\AfterShotPro\locale\
...where AfterShotPro is probably a hidden file.

I haven't used Windows for 10-12 years, so forgive me if that's not quite right. You could always do a search for the file names.
There's keywords.xml and keywordSets.xml - if you're familiar with xml, they're pretty easy to edit but make a backup first.

If I ever get a few minutes I might make a script to automate it but it'd be Linux only, I'm afraid (using bash, python or perl).

Cheers,
G

Thanks to your help I found them in Win 7:

C:\Users\NAME\AppData\Local\Corel\AfterShot Pro\locale\en

At least I can restore them now after a backup...

I found the defaults in:
C:\Program Files (x86)\Corel\Corel AfterShot Pro\supportfiles\defaults\locale\en
