Moving Clarify to a different computer

Moving Templates and Annotation Presets

Reveal the Templates folder using the Help > Reveal Custom Template Folder menu option

From the Help menu, select Reveal Custom Template Folder.

Reveal the Templates folder using the Help > Reveal Custom Template Folder menu option

In the Finder (OS X) or Windows Explorer (Windows) you will see the Templates folder revealed. At the same level as the Templates folder is an Annotation Presets folder. You want to copy these two folders to the new computer. DO NOT just copy the 2.0 folder.

Moving the Preference file on Windows

On Windows Vista and later the Clarify preference file is stored alongside the Annotation Presets and Templates folder. The file is named be Clarify Preferences.dat. Copy that file to the new computer as well.

Moving the Preference file on Windows

Moving the Preference file on OS X

On OS X the Clarify preference file can be stored in two different locations. If you are running the version of Clarify available from our store then the file is located here:

~/Library/Preferences/com.bluemangolearningsystems.clarify-osx.plist

If you are running the version of Clarify purchased from the Mac App Store then it is located here:

~/Library/Containers/com.bluemangolearningsystems.clarify-osx/Data/Library/Preferences/com.bluemangolearningsystems.clarify-osx.plist 

The ~ symbol represents your home folder on the computer.

I am trying to move license from my Dell computer to new MAC. When I downloaded Clarify on MAC, system set me for trial period. Please help

Hi Natalia. A Windows-only license won't work on a macOS system. You would need to upgrade to the cross-platform license in order to register Clarify on macOS. Email support@screensteps.com and we can help you with that. You only have to pay the difference between a single-platform license and a cross-platform license.
