Hello,

Use the menu Tools/browse system folder to find the Style folder and then copy all the style folder on your second PC (with same manner to find the system folder)

For convenient, you can copy all the system folder in another location (in a folder in your "my doc" for example) and then set this filepath in the tools/options "system path" parameter. More easy to find it to transfer data between the PC

You can also share this new system folder on the network if you have one.

Hello,

You don't see it in the Styles folder even if you use the Cambam menu Tools/browse system folder  ?

The name of the file IS NOT the name of the style but the name of the style library that contain it. If you ave not created a new library, your style is saved in the standard library. Standard-in if you use inch or Standard-mm if you use mm

You can explore the library file with the "notepad", it's a text file, and you certainly found a line like:

<CAMStyle Name="sign-6mm"> in the Standard-mm.xml file that define your style library.

Hi Radioman,
I think I can see the question you are asking - in my case on my machine which had Win2k installed originally followed by a recent XP build, my styles libraries are located at C:\Documents and Settings\All Users.WINDOWS\Application Data\CamBam plus 0.9.8\styles
The styles themselves are buried in the "standard-in" or "standard-mm" xml files.

On my second machine which had XP installed on it as an original build, the styles are located at C:\Documents and Settings\All Users\Application Data\CamBam plus 0.9.8\styles

I checked the locations by setting up a 'dummy' style and looking to see if the style had been updated.

Hopefully this was the question you were asking!
Regards,
Simon
