Thanks Paul. I will poke into these files to see what I can pull out.
The books.xml, report_options.xml, tool_options.xml and possibly a few other xml files are stored in the "C:\Users\you\AppData\Roaming\gramps" on Windows, and in "~/.gramps" on Linux.
If you have custom filters, they are stored in the custom_filters.xml file in the gramps42 (or gramps50 if you have a 5.0.0 version installed) sub-directory of the above listed directories.
The various .ini files in both places also store a lot of file names (with the corresponding system directory layout), other preferences and window sizes/positions etc., which you should NOT copy between systems.
I have a little question, just in case you have answers. I have been testing different versions of gramps on 3 different platforms: win 10, linux, and virt-box linux, to see which fails, and which works.
I am having a hard time keeping these settings the same on all my platforms:
How or where are they stored: in the database, or independent XML files? It seems they don’t get passed through the export / import functions.
I would help if I can hand-extract them from 1 platform, and carry them (copy / paste) to the other platform.
