    Take Saved Searches Along when Upgrading?

    TᴀW Adobe Community Professional & MVP

      Hi,

       

      Is it possible to copy over all the saved searches (Text and GREP) I

      used in CS4 so that they'll be available in CS6?

       

      Many thanks,

      Ariel

       

      Win 7

          Hi Arïel,

           

          In windows they are stored here

          C:\Users\Trevor\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\InDesign\Version 7.0-ME\en_GB\Find-Change Queries

          They are basic XML filess, here's one.

          I would guess by changing the 'Version major="5" minor="1" ' to  'Version major="7" minor="0" ' that it should work.  Can't guarantee it.  Would be easy to script a batch change function although they might well work "as is"

           

          Regard,

          Trevor

              It seems to work even without changing the version number.

               

              Thanks,

              Ariel

                I thought it would.

                Please mark as correct
