The preferences files associated to any application retain details about the user preferences, launch and toolbar settings, window arrangements, and so on. If those files are corrupted, the target app might be rendered unusable.

Preference Manager is a simple Mac app designed to help you manage the preferences files that are associated to the Final Cut Studio / Express/ Pro X, Adobe Creative Cloud / Suite, Logic Pro X / Pro Tools, Avid Media Composer, or Avid Symphony installations.

Forthright solution for deleting, backing up , or restoring preferences files

Most of the Preference Manager capabilities can be accessed via the app’s main window, and are organized by tabs: trash, backup, lock, and restore. Within the Preference Manager main window you can see a list with all the apps for which you can manage the preferences files.

All you have to do is select the preferences you want to remove, backup, lock, or restore, and then press the appropriate button from the bottom area of the main window to actually launch the process.

Integrates with the Pro Maintenance Tools to provide global hotkeys

Preference Manager offers you the possibility to change the default backup location, can automatically restore the default backup after deleting the preferences for an app, and can relink the Final Cut Pro app to Motion 4.

Moreover, Preference Manager comes with an autosaving function and allows you to sync the same preferences to all your devices by using Kollaborate. Last but not least, if the Pro Maintenance Tools app is also installed on your Mac, you have the possibility to generate global hotkeys.

User friendly preferences manager that can fix issues related to Final Cut, Logic Pro, or Avid installations

Preference Manager is a great tool to have around if you are using some of the most popular video processing apps and you want to avoid dealing with corrupted preferences: the app is able to backup, delete, lock, or restore your default preferences in no time. In addition, you can sync the same preferences files to all your devices, and avoid preforming the same adjustments more than once.
