The files KEYBOARD.KBF and MYTPEN.INI contain the current configuration and layout information (see below for more details). IMPORTANT: These 2 files (i.e. the KEYBOARD.KBF and MYTPEN.INI files) should be treated as a "matched" pair - you may experience configuration or operational problems if only 1 of these files is moved between systems! If you have created or modified any Macros, and / or are using the Macro panel in your layout, then it is a good idea (and important) to copy the MAC*.KMF files. If you are using any developer's kit integration EXE/DLL files, then you should be aware of which files you are using, and you need to be sure these also exist on any other system.
There are additional notes, and other technical information available regarding files and operational issues available in the product help / manual. Below is some basic information about the files that contain the configuration (i.e. user-modifiable files).
- KEYBOARD.KBF - This file is a binary file that contains sizing, position, and other layout information that defines the actual window, panel, and key display information. It is not directly user-modifiable, but it is updated whenever the "Save Current Settings" or "Save Position" events occur.
- MYTPEN.INI - This is an initialization file (INI file) that can be modified directly (using any text editor, e.g. Notepad), or through the Setup configuration utility. For comprehensive coverage of settings and options, refer to the product help / manual covering the Initialization file.
- MAC00000.KMF - This is a required file, and contains the main macro panel layout. If your layout includes the macro panels, then it is a good idea to copy ALL macro panels (e.g. MAC*.KMF or MAC?????.KMF) between systems. If you have created or modified macros, then you must also copy all MAC*.KMF files to copy the configuration between systems. If you have not created or modified macros, or are not using the macro panel at all, then these files do not need to be moved.
- 1.78 Note - These files are now stored in user specific locations based on the ConfigPath entry in the INI file.
