    Anyone managed to find where Vegas hides its preferences (options>preferences) and main toolbar settings (removed/added various icons) file?

    I searched for *vegas* in whole docs/settings/users and went thru it all but no success. Only got keyboard preffs, but none of the other files in that location store the preffs and toolbar.

    (Note that im not talking about render presets/fx presets/window layouts, those didnt seem to include toolbar/preffs settings when i tested)

    Why? What are you trying to do? (The settings are probably inaccessible for a good reason).

    Have you tried the hidden internal settings? Hold shift when selecting preferences and there will be an extra tab labelled “internal”

    But these settings are hidden for a good reason because you can truly screw up your installation is misused.

    For backup and reinstall purposes. As i always customize my cg applications alot to speed up my work (loads of custom hotkeys for everything and shelves/toolbars for stuff that cant be hotkeyed etc) so i always make backups of hotkeys and preferences to make sure i dont spend whole day reconfiguring in case of fried drive or os reinstall.

    I tried uninstalling vegas and deleting all its remains in programfiles and after installing it again, the toolbar and preffs were kept.. so it has to be somewhere outside of it.

    Thanks for the internal preffs tip by the way, good stuff, i didnt know that and i will go through the options there later, it might help me solve other things like setting frame number offset and padding when rendering image sequences

    managed to find it, so im gonna answer myself here just in case you wanna backup your custom toolbar icons layout and preferences, its stored in registry at:

    HKEY_CURRENT_USER/Software/Sony Creative Software/Vegas Pro/10.0/Metrics/Application
    (The Application folder contains it all, so it can be exported for backup)

    Keybinds tho (which are definitely more important), are by default stored in a file:
    C:/Documents and settings/username/application data/sony/vegas pro/10.0/keyboard.ini

    Location of the hotkey file can be changed thru the registry or the shift+prefferences secret menu within vegas
