I just tried using thebrain 7 for the first time today (v7.0.3.0)
All my custom KBAs seems to have been reset to the factory defaults.
Is this intentional?
Is there a way to recover my custom versions?

Sorry to hear that; did you export your accelerators previously as a backup?

Not in recent history.  Were there instructions somewhere that said to do that as part of the upgrade process that I missed?  I backed up my brain DB before I upgraded.  I also saw that thebrain created a backup as well.  Was a backup of the accelerators automatically created somewhere?

No, it's a manual export from the Accelerators dialogue window. Perhaps a solution is to open a backup of your brain from a pre-7 install, export your accelerators to a *.csv and then reopen your latest brain with v7 and if the acceletors aren't there you can import the file.

That implies that accelerators are stored on a per brain basis. Is that true? I thought they were app wide prefs, and thus stored somewhere else, like the prefs file.

I don't think that's true. The default accelerator list seems to be stored in the res folder located in TheBrain's install directory, but the custom list is stored in your user profile. On my system (Win 7 64 bit) I found it at 'C:\Users\username\AppData\Roaming\TheBrain'. The file is called 'accelerators.csv'

Nice Zoner, hadn't spotted that!

As previously mentioned - the quickest fix to recover your old Accelerators is to open a backup in PB6 and do a quick export.  The CSV file will be compatible in TheBrain 7.

Thank you,
Matt
