Blender is very dynamically developed, so new versions of the program appear regularly. However, having downloaded the next release from the Blender website, we always need to configure it in a convenient way.
In order not to manually reset all personal user settings and reinstall all add-ons, we can quickly transfer settings and add-ons from the previous version to the new version of Blender.
- When we start Blender for the first time, in the splash screen we can press the “Load 2.xx Settings” button.
After that, settings and add-ons from the version indicated on the button will be transferred to the current version of Blender.
- Or, if we want to control the process of transferring settings ourselves, we can manually copy files with settings and add-ons.
Open the following directory on your computer:
It will contain a list of directories with the names of the different Blender versions previously installed on your computer.
Make a copy of the folder with the version from which you want to take settings and add-ons and then rename it to the number of the new version of Blender.
