Ouch! I'm glad we have managed to avoid saying it sucks! (oops)
I was really hoping the sensible way would work. Ideally i had imagined copying the old
user-profile all around the place and then installing the newer LO so that 'a few' (hopefully
not too many) settings might get changed or added. I'm sure it has worked for me but i haven't
been taking much notice tbh.
Mostly i just reconfigure whichever machine i happen to be hot-desking on but not in a
structured and planned way. I've noticed users who complain about a thing not being set a
certain way tend to set it back after i take the trouble to set it up the way they said they
wanted. So, i tend to set things the way i prefer on my logins and leave them to it. I need to
be more organised though. The xcu thing looks interesting.

In theory, yes. In practice, YMMV. I always now systematically rename my
LO user profile before installing a new version, then install the new
version, start it once, and then replace the user profile created with
my previously backed up one. It sucks that one should have to do this in
order to preseve one's settings. I know of no other app where this is

You can zip your profile and send it to the developers with detailed info about your system and
which upgrade was spoiled by that particular profile.
According to exprerience with parallel installations, extensions are the main culprit. You may
try to remove all your additional extensions before installation and see if this helps somehow.
