Stream Deck update available - Warning! ⚠️

(Apologies if you are also on the Keyboard Maestro forum, you might see this twice.)

The good news is that there’s an update to the Stream Deck software.

The bad news is that when I launched the app after updating it, all of my customizations were gone.

The relief was that when I re-launched the app, they came back. But that’s the last time I’ll take that chance without exporting a backup of my configuration first.

Doing that is a fairly easy process, but if you don’t know where it is, it can be hard to discover:

Follow the red from top-to-bottom:

  1. Click on the gear icon in the red box
  2. That will open the preferences window. Click on “Profiles”
  3. Make sure the profile is selected
  4. Click the minuscule “v” near the bottom
  5. Choose “Export”

Obviously if you have other profiles, repeat steps 3-5 for each of them.

I probably could have figured out how to restore this file from Time Machine or Backblaze, but I’d much rather have an export of it tucked safely away in ~/Dropbox/Backups/StreamDeck/
