I need to extract my favorites... can't find them.

I have no idea where Avant is saving my bookmarks or "favorites". I need to back them up and save them to another machine but I can't find them!

Can someone PLEASE help me out? Lot of school, work, and reference related stuff in there that I really need!

File >> Export Bookmarks...

Search the forum for exporting and importing bookmarks for more info.

Okay, that's half of the problem fixed. Now how do I extract the files and folders from that?

What do you want to do with them? The exported file is a standard format recognised by most browsers.

To import them into another computer running Avant: File >> Import >> Bookmarks from Mozilla/Firefox >> Select the HTML file

To import them into Internet Explorer: Favourites >> Import and Export... >> Import from a file >> Favourites >> Select the htm file

You can also open the htm file directly from a web browser to see the bookmarks as links.

You've probably set Avant to use IE Favourites rather then bookmarks: Tools >> Avant Browser Options... >> Miscellaneous >> Use IE Favourites as bookmarks

You should use Internet Explorer for importing and exporting, ie to import: Favourites >> Import and Export... >> Import from a file >> Favourites >> Select the htm file
