Managing and migrating application preferences on different computers?

What is the most efficient way to manage and migrate my Illustrator workspace and other preferences while working on different computers in the Cloud?

My home computer has Ilustrator CS6 installed and I’m about to customize my preferences and workspaces in the app. If I use my Cloud subscription at my workplace, how do access those same preferences at my workplace? Do I have to manually transfer my user prefs from my library, or is there some Cloud magic to help me out?

    I'd caution against using personally license software for ANY business unless you also own the business.


    You should be able to migrate the workspave nad preference files from your home installation to any other installation, irrespective of the "cloud". Simply copy the preference files on one system and place them in the same location on another system. Even with a cloud subscription, preference files must reside locally.
