Hi

I have a lot of window a door favorites saved on my templet I use to start new projects. The migration has certainly made things easier but I do end up using an older version of windows doors or having to go though manually and re save all my favorites.

Is there any downside to migrating my templet from the older version?

or any easy way to use the latest and transfer the settings without having to do it manually?

thanks

how about drawing one long wall, putting all your favourite windows / doors in the wall, copy + paste that wall in to the new template and use syringe to pick up the settings.

Library part migration should take care of recognising the new part.

then inject the setting into the new version of similar window and save that as a new favorite?

that is actually what I had been doing before migration can along

Not sure which library you were using before, but generally, you can swap out the old library for the new one and it will migrate the objects. After that you could save them again as favourites.
