How to locate my callas preferences?

Background

This article explains how you can locate your preferences for one of the callas products. This can be helpful if you want to make sure you have a backup, if some of the preferences got damaged or if you want to move your settings to a different machine.

Instructions

The settings for the callas products are stored in your system's preferences folder. The location of this folder is different for different operating systems, look for your operating system below to find it:

  • Windows
    %APPDATA%\callas software\
  • Mac OS X
    /Users/USERNAME/Library/Preferences/callas software/ 

In this general preferences folder for callas software, you will find sub folders for each product you have installed.

Note when using Mac OS X

As of Mac OS X 10.7 (Lion), the user library folder is hidden by default. You have two options to use content in it anyway:

  • Run the following command in the Terminal: chflags nohidden ~/Library.
  • Go to the Finder and click the "Go" menu so that the list of places appears you can go to. Hold the "option" key to make "Library" appear in this list.
