Default FontAgentPro: export/import libraries?

I installed Font Agent Pro 3 recently. Previous to that, i used version 1, in which i organised my fonts well into different libraries and sets. How can I make use of these sets and libs in the newer version? It took me quiet some time to organize all the fonts and don't want to do this again. Any suggestions are appreciated.

I've just started using Font Agent Pro, so can't help you, sorry, but I know at least one person here is a happy user. I don't remember who right now, but perhaps they'll spot your post.

Hm...perhaps a change of thread title to include the Font Agent Pro name will get them to notice...

From the FAQ at Insider Software:

How do I backup my fonts and sets and restore them or move them to another computer?

FontAgent Pro uses full paths to identify font files. The following technique works if existing libraries are restored or moved to exactly the same location (full path) on the new computer and if libraries are stored in the Home directory and moved to a different user's Home directory. All the fonts, libraries, and sets will be moved to the new computer...

Well, it looks like I only changed the title of the root message as it displays in the thread, not the actual thread title. Oh well, IAC it seems you have help on the way now, so that's good news! :-)
