How to preserve custom keymaps from one version to another?

Hello, I have many custom keymaps in blender… and when I changed from 2.61 to 2.62 It messed up many of my shortcust…

Is there a way to preserve my original keymaps…?

The first time you start a new version of blender (not just a updated build of your current versiosn) you should see an option in the splashscreen to copy your current settings.

In the User Preferences / Input you can export/import key configurations


Thanks for answering (so quickly!!!), that is what I do, but when I import my key configuration some of them work, but others don’t… or the default behavior is used instead…

Locate you old startup.blend, C:\Users\User_Name\AppData\Roaming\Blender Foundation\Blender\Version#\config\Startup.blend for me, open that in the newest blender version and all your old defaults should be restored exactly how they used to be.


Thank you Very much!!! It works!!!.. now I guess I have to copy this file to the new version of blender and work from there!!

thank you a lot!
