Blender 2.83 crashed because I pressed Ctrl + Z one too many times (this pitfall is still a thing. At this late stage. Yes). Now one of my more recent User Preferences hotkey changes is reverted to the default. Maybe more have reverted also, but I don't yet know the extent of this annoyance.

I know better than to expect to enjoy a crash-free Blender experience. But at the very least, I want to enjoy a shortcut losing-free experience. So I want to know how to prevent the need to manually rebuild these shortcuts. I know there is a User Preference file somewhere that could probably be re-loaded, provided I had a backed up version located somewhere else. I would create one, if I knew where the User Preference file is stored. But I don't. I don't even know what the exact file I'm needing is called. I'm running Ubuntu Studio 19.10, and I don't know where to look for this file.

  • $\begingroup$ the file you need is the usrepref.blend file. Remember to use the search box at the top of the page for common questions. Where is the startup file stored? $\endgroup$ – susu Jun 12 at 20:19

  • $\begingroup$ Does this answer your question? How do i copy my user preferences settings and load them into an older version of blender? $\endgroup$ – susu Jun 12 at 20:21
  • $\begingroup$ Hi, susu. I don't appreciate you assuming I didn't search for questions before asking a question. Because that absolutely didn't happen. At all. I searched for some time, in fact. But thanks for adding something helpful in addition to your admonishment. $\endgroup$ – R-800 Jun 12 at 20:32

    $\begingroup$ Hello :). You can backup and sync your settings using the free Blender Cloud addon. It also backs up your startup file, which is nice. $\endgroup$ – Jachym Michal Jun 12 at 20:44
