How to migrate Livegrade 5.2 Beta projects to Livegrade 5.2 public version

If you are a user of Livegrade 5.2 Beta you might want to migrate your projects to the Livegrade public version. There is an easy process to perform this migration.

Locating the Library Folders

Livegrade Pro and Livegrade Studio and the associated beta versions have different library folders that contain the projects. You will find them at the following paths on your Mac:

            ~/Library/Application Support/Pomfort/Livegrade5

~/Library/Application Support/Pomfort/Livegrade5_2Beta

~/Library/Application Support/Pomfort/LivegradeStudio5

            ~/Library/Application Support/Pomfort/LivegradeStudio5_2Beta

You can also navigate to the folders from the Main Menu of Livegrade using the menu item “Livegrade>Show Library in Finder”.

Migrating the Library

  1. Close Livegrade
  2. Backup existing Livegrade 5 projects: Rename the current Livegrade 5 library folder (e.g. Livegrade5) in the directory  ~/Library/Application Support/Pomfort/ to Livegrade5_old”
  3. Rename the beta version library folder (e.g. Livegrade5_2Beta) in the directory  ~/Library/Application Support/Pomfort/ to Livegrade5
  4. Open Livegrade 5.2
  5. The project database will be updated automatically when you first open a project.
  6. You can now use Livegrade with your projects from Livegrade Beta.

Please note that for large libraries the process can take several minutes. During that time Livegrade will become unresponsive. Leave the system running and the migration process will come to a solid finish.


If you want to keep projects you created in Livegrade 5  before the migration process you can do that by copying the project folders:

  1. Close Livegrade.
  2. Go to the previously renamed “Livegrade5_old” folder.
  3. Select the projects you want to take over to your migrated Livegrade library (projects folder usually are named like “Project-1F342864AF90”)
  4. Copy them to the current Livegrade 5 folder.
  5. Start Livegrade

You will then have all your migrated and the previously created projects in Livegrade 5.2 together at one place.
