Migrating 5.2 Personal Data and Setup Options

When you install, you are prompted to migrate personal data. You probably want to mark this option. The data migrated to the current installation includes:

  • Text document, spreadsheet, presentation, drawing and user preferences. This includes files for colors and hatches like .sob and .soh files.

  • Any user settings for user information: AutoCorrection, Autotext, backup preferences, backup directory, Internet (Proxy) settings, gallery, plugins, templates, wordbooks, your standard work (data) folder (copied to your home directory for Solaris users and the My Documents folder for Windows users), and user dictionaries.

  • To keep your customized menu, keyboard, statusbar and toolbar configurations, locate the .cfg file (office52/user/config/soffice.cfg). Load it into the current release of the program by choosing Tools > Configuration > Load.

The following user preferences and data are not migrated automatically and should be updated manually: math symbols, paths settings, module settings in the Tools > Options windows, bookmarks, Calc addins, and basic macros.

It does not migrate email data or preferences; see Migrating Your StarOffice 5.2 Mail to Another Mail Program on page 47.
