I'm needing to uninstall and reinstall CS6. I have a large number in find/change queries that would be exceedingly difficult to redefine. How do I rescue these along with other features like Workspaces or Actions in PhotoShop?
Your saved find/change queries are in a folder in your user library or user profile (depending on your OS). You can find the path to where they are stored in the information provided for the InDesign Defaults file at Replace Your Preferences. The saved queries folder is in the same parent folder as the InDesign Defaults file. Note that this is a HIDDEN folder on all recent operating systems.
There should also be a Workspaces folder in the same location for ID. Similar folders should be found for the other programs under their respective application folders in the same user library/profile location.
