About Migrating and Transferring Custom Settings

There are a number of tools available to help you migrate custom settings between
releases, or to transfer settings from one computer to another.

Tools for Migrating Custom Settings From Previous Releases

The following tools allow you to migrate custom settings and files from a previous
release of the program to the current release.

  • Migrate Custom Settings Dialog Box. Migrates user profiles, CUI and CUIx files, tool palette (ATC) files, and user-defined
    linetype (LIN) files, hatch pattern (PAT) files, the acad.pgp (or acadlt.pgp for AutoCAD LT) file, which contains command aliases, and custom materials. (AutoCAD
    LT does not support user profiles.)
  • Customize User Interface (CUI) Editor. Migrates select custom interface elements from one release to another. The CUI Editor
    converts legacy menu (MNU and MNS) and CUI files to the CUIx format, while leaving
    the original file unchanged.
  • Advanced Tools. Additional migration tools available from the Autodesk website, include the following:
    • DWG TrueView. Converts DWG files from one release to another. You can also use the DWGCONVERT
      command from within the program.
    • ScriptPro. Runs a script file on a set of drawings. (Not available for AutoCAD LT.)
    • AutoLISP Compatibility Analyzer. Details compatibility issues found in AutoLISP files and the accompanying menu (MNL)
      files. When a compatibility issue is found, the tool provides an explanation of the
      issue and suggestions on how to correct it. (AutoCAD LT does not support AutoLISP.)

NOTE:It is recommended that you migrate your custom settings and files as soon as possible
after installing a new product version to avoid overwriting any new customization.

Tools for Transferring Custom Settings Between Computers

The following tools allow you to transfer custom settings and files between computers
with the same release of the program.

  • Sync My Settings. Syncs custom settings with your online Autodesk account. When using Autodesk 360,
    you can download settings from your online account to a different computer.
  • Export/Import Settings. Creates a transfer package of all your custom settings to import to another computer.
    You can also use this tool to create a backup of your custom settings.
  • Customize User Interface (CUI) Editor. Transfers individual custom settings between different computers.
