I have saved some Settings. Now I'd like to use these settings on my second PC. I can't find the files.

What can I do to get the same settings on my second PC?

I'm sure you are aware that you can just copy your "C\SierraChart\Data" folder over to your second PC. This folder has your chartbooks.

The Sierra3.cfg file is under "C:\SierraChart\" and contains most thing, including how you configured your control bars ie. Unfortunately, you can't read it with a text editor. But that file is extremely important.

@Mack, cfg file is known but on my second PC I use some different setting.
Therefore I thought it could be easier to copy/paste the mentioned settings.

Ideally, the Sierra3.cfg should be plaintext. That way we could put it under version control, also you could see what settings actually change between saves.

I typically backup my whole C:\SierraChart\ folder, without the SCID files.

The Graphics Settings configurations are contained within Sierra3.CFG and that is the file you need to copy.
