  1. How do I transfer a TWS workspace to another computer?:confused:

    I looked for a file in JTS, but I didn't see anything. I assume that workspaces are not part of the "settings saved on server"?
  2. There is a file called tws.xml that is located in your profile's directory under Jts. Go to File / Restore to figure out which directory this is and copy over the tws.xml file to the second computer and restore the settings.
  3. hmm didn't see that file. But used the export/import functionality in "workspace manager" to accomplish it.

  4. There is a directory in JTS that will look like "drfwjxldvt"...
    There is one of these for every account your ever used...
    You have to copy this entire directory to another PC's JTS directory.
