This question already has an answer here:
Just downloaded the latest version of Blender and was hoping for an easy way to port over some screen layouts made in the previous version.
Here's what worked for me:
- Open previous version of Blender
- Save current state as
startup.blend(or other filename of choice)
- Open the startup.blend file in new version of Blender and choose
File -> Save Startup File (Ctrl + U)
Does anyone know of a better way to import/export screen layouts? Even though this worked for me, it doesn't seem like the best practice since some things may or may not get carried over in a startup.blend file.
