Preferences are not preserved when upgrading Katalon Studio


#1

When I upgrade Katalon Studio on mac by dragging the new version to my applications folder and overwriting the old version, my Katalon Studio preferences are lost. For instance, my default browser preference as well as my test case view preference are lost after upgrading.

Agreed. Although, I installed side-by-side (call me chicken) and imported settings. Didn’t work despite what the docs say:


I hope someone fixes this and https://forum.katalon.com/discussion/5525/ks-5-3-1-tabs-spaces-settings-broken

Hi all,

Can you know any settings are not imported in this case?

Regards

Hi Vinh

It’s not easy to say for certain what’s missing since the application and the docs are not consistent about the naming. In KS, the menus talk about:

1 - Project Settings
2 - Katalon Studio Preferences

The docs talk about:

1 - Import Settings
2 - “keeping preferences setting”

For me, I lost my “Katalon Studio Preferences” as mentioned here: https://forum.katalon.com/discussion/5525/ks-5-3-1-tabs-spaces-settings-broken#latest

Hi Russ,

Tabs settings will be fixed in the next release. Regard to ‘Import Settings’, I’ve double checked and see only Preferences within Katalon menu is imported, so other items besides Katalon menu will not be carried as well.

This just happened on update 5.8.6. I lost all my code coloring preferences, git integration, etc… all the katalon preferences. Where is this file(s) so I can make sure to keep a backup copy?
