  • Saving and Copying MapGuide Bookmarks

    The MapGuide Viewer's bookmarks are stored in your computer's registry. Windows Internet Explorer users can copy the MapGuide Viewer's bookmarks to another PC by exporting them from the old computer's registry to a file and then importing that file's settings into the registry on the new computer.

    Caution should be used when exporting and importing registry keys. Incorrect registry changes can damage your computer's settings and even make your computer inoperable. You need Administrator rights on the PCs with permissions to read and modify the registry. You should contact your computer's administrator if you aren't familiar with updating the registry.

    The registry key that needs to be exported is:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\Autodesk\MapGuide Viewer ActiveX Control\CurrentVersion\Bookmarks

    To copy the bookmarks registry key, start the regedt32 program, export the key to a file such as MGBookmarks.reg (select the key then File, Export...), copy that file to the new PC, and then import the key into the new PC by double-clicking on the .reg file or choosing File, Import... in regedt32.
