Backing Up and Restoring Settings
If you’ve used Kurzweil 1000 over time, there may be many settings
files you’ve customized and prefer to work with. In addition, you’ve
probably customized your correction, word dictionary and
pronunciation files, your favorite files and favorite folders lists, and
your KESI Virtual Printer extensions list.
When you upgrade your computer system, what happens to these
files? Kurzweil 1000 lets you make a backup of, and preserve, all
your settings files, then later restore them to your new computer.
The Backup Settings and Restore Settings commands are
accessible from the Settings menu. Both features use the File
dialog. Select or type in the name of the folder from or to which you
want to backup or restore settings.
Note: When backing up settings, the folder you specify need not
exist, because it’s the one to which you are writing the files. When
restoring settings, however, the folder must exist, as the system
expects to find the files you are restoring in there.
To backup or restore a settings file:
1. From the Settings menu, choose Backup Settings (mnemonic
B) or Restore Settings to open the File dialog.
Your cursor is in the File Name text box.
2. Type the name of the folder to which you want to backup the
files, or from which you want to restore the files.
Alternatively, press the TAB key until your cursor is in the Folder
tree view box. Use the ARROW keys to select the desired folder.
