Preference Manager

16 October 2019

Manage Final Cut Studio preference files.

Overview

Preference Manager allows you to trash, lock, backup and restore Final Cut Studio, Final Cut Pro X, Avid Media Composer, Adobe Premiere Pro and Adobe After Effects preference files. These files contain user settings and preferences but can cause problems if they become corrupted. Trashing the files allows you to restore operability to your machine.

Preference Manager can also backup and restore not only preference files, but Final Cut Pro button bars, keyboard layouts, column layouts, window layouts, track layouts, custom settings and user plugins. Backups are stored in a single compressed file, allowing you to easily copy them from one machine to another.

It would be helpful if the developer renamed this product "Final Cut Preference Manager". The current name infers that it deals with all preference files on the Mac which is confusing.

Great tool and a great update. Now has Pro Tools support and improved Adobe support. No problems encountered yet. So handy and so free--five stars. I've never had to use the author's repair tools, but wouldn't hesitate to buy them should the need arise.

Does what it advertises to do (backup/delete/restore prefs). However, the "Restoring the window layout" issue persists. Only effects 10.6.8 users...does not effect Lion users. Don
