how can I use online bookmarks after install

Post by Jamy » Thu Oct 12, 2006 11:10 pm

Hi, I just upgraded from AB 10 to AN 11built15 and have a couple of questions:
1. On the initial install I was asked if I want to store my bookmarks online or locally and I chose locally. Is there any way I can change this now to 'online'? If I go to Tools>AB otions>online storage it is grayed and I can't press anything

2.The new install erased all my previos settings (never happened before after updating) and completely erased all my bookmarks I had under 'Groups'. It doesn't even give me an option any more to have 'Groups' available under 'Customize Button'. Is there a way I can get my 'Groups' back or are they all erased?

Any help much appreciated![/list]

1. I'll let someone else answer this.

2. Groups are now in a folder under the Bookmarks menu.

1. You'll have to setup a new account for online storage. When you opt out of it initially, you use Avant's local account. That's why those options are grayed out.

Try copying C:\Documents and Settings\your Windows account\Application Data\Avant Profiles\.default\conf\conf.dat & C:\Documents and Settings\your Windows account\Application Data\Avant Profiles\.default\conf.dat to your new online account to copy over your configuration settings. Your new account folder won't be .default. It will be the e-mail address you used to register online.
