synchronizing font lists/prefs in FontExplorer X

Hi,

I do quite a lot of graphics/motion design, and have recently received a 15" Powerbook to supplement my G5 at work. I, of course, immediately installed all the necessary programs and fonts onto the new machine, and have recently been familiarizing myself with FontExplorer X for font management. I suppose my question is this; how can I synchronize my preferences and font list from one machine to match the other? On one machine, inside of FontExplorer X, I have nice little smart folders for "grunge", "sans-serif", "script", etc, and really want to avoid having to manually go through my font library and change all of that on my other machine as well. Any ideas?

Thanks a bunch.

tried doing so with Save/Load Configuration

Hey,
I'm trying to do exactly the same thing with our PowerMacs at work. Duplicated my entire FontExplorer X library to another machine. Tried Configuration/ Save from FE X on the organized machine and Configuration/ Load on the other. It did re-create my set and smart sets scheme, but there were no fonts within these sets.

FontExplorer X on multiple macs

I think I've got the answer. This is the what Linotype tech support said.

You have to copy the database too ...
Try to copy the entire folder:
[UserName]/Library/Application Support/Linotype/FontExplorer X
