Exporting and importing Favorites

Post by mbrazil » Tue Jul 26, 2005 10:58 pm

Is there any way to export the Favorites from Avant Browser, save them in a file, copy the file to another PC, and import them into Avant on that PC. Is there any way to do this?

Not from with-in AB. But AB shares its favorites with IE... so if you import & export from there, that will do it.

Hint: Look under the File menu in IE. :wink:

Thanks. I should have thought of that. Duh. It's too bad that IE doesn't retain the order the folders and links are in, though. Oh well, it was still a lot less work than rekeying all of them. :)

If you copy favorder.ini in aplication data, you can save the order too. You'll find it here,

C:\Documents and Settings\Username\Application Data\Avant Browser

Actually you can also backup all your settings including favorder automaticaly with ABEdit. Check it out,
