What is the most efficient way to manage and migrate my Photoshop workspace and other preferences while working on different computers in the Cloud?
My home computer has Photoshop 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?
At the moment, there is no way to do that automatically.
You can copy your prefs and presets to a cloud storage site manually, but that's about it.
And the photoshop prefs don't work well across computers or operating systems -- they store drive identifiers, file paths, machine specific preferences, etc.
Funny, I just tried saving some prefs (for Illustrator) into my cloud storage and it didn't work (or are invisible). However, when I tried uploading a couple of other files (.png, .rtf, and .svg), those uploads worked.
If I thought it would do any good, I'd do my best to persuade you that migrating, transferring or copying preference files is not a good idea, but then you'd tell me to mind my own business. So I won't.
