I currently have bbedit setup with my custom shortcuts and I would like to export these setting to my office mac. Is there a way for me to export these settings ?


To export your settings and preferences to a new Mac copy the following files and folders to it:




~/Library/Application Support/BBEdit

~ indicates your user folder.

  • This answer didn't work for me; possibly because I am using a different version of BBEdit. The additional task I had to do is update the file name for ~//Library/BBEdit/Sleep State-<some_id>.appstate (where "<some_id>" appears to be unique to a machine). I did this by first running BBEdit on the target machine to determine the new "<some_id>" then I performed the tasks in this answer from @klanomath. After that I renamed ~//Library/BBEdit/Sleep State-<some_id>.appstate to ~//Library/BBEdit/Sleep State-<new_some_id>.appstate. – steveb Jul 13 '17 at 23:11
  • These tasks should also be performed w/o BBEdit running. – steveb Jul 13 '17 at 23:11
