Migrating a FontAgent Pro install from one computer to another or from one user account to another is simple but can be a little tricky because to do it properly the FontAgent Pro database must reference the same "FontAgent Pro Fonts" folder location on the new computer as it did on the old computer

  1. On the old computer, Open FontAgent Pro.
  2. From the menu bar, select FontAgent Pro > Preferences (command-,).
  3. Verify that the Manage System Fonts checkbox is deactivated. If this checkbox is already deactivated, move on to the next step.
  4. Quit FontAgent Pro (command-q).
  5. Copy to an external hard drive, or burn to a DVD these to folders:
    • /Users/[your username]/FontAgent Pro
    • /Users/[your username]/Library/FontAgent Pro
    • /Users/[your username]/Library/Preferences/com.insidersoftware.fontagentpro.fontmanager.plist
  6. NOTE: If you are using OS X 10.7 (Lion) or later, to get to your Home Library folder, you'll need to:
    • Hold down the option key on your keyboard
    • From the menu bar select Go > Library (you may now let go of the option key.
  7. On the new computer, install FontAgent Pro.
  8. Copy the "FontAgent Pro Fonts" and "FontAgent Pro" folders from the external hard drive to the same relative locations on your new computer.
  9. Open FontAgent Pro, walk through the Setup Assistant, and make sure when it asks where you'd like to store the FontAgent Pro Fonts folder that you choose the location that you just copied the FontAgent Pro Fonts folder to.
  10. After finishing the Setup Assistant you should see your fonts. If you don't, then you did not copy the Database folder to the correct location. If you DO see your fonts, you should verify that there are no problems with them. To do that, select the All Fonts tab, select all of your fonts (command-a), then from the menu bar, select Tools > Verify Fonts.
