Solving weird issues with Manga Studio by deleting the preferences

Solving weird issues with Manga Studio by deleting the preferences

 

Overview

Deleting Manga Studio's preferences shouldn't normally be necessary, but occasionally tools or brushes will go missing, or you'll wind up with a setting that doesn't seem to go away, no matter what you do. In cases like these, deleting the preference files can fix things up and get Manga Studio working right again. Should you need to delete your prefs, you can do so by first locating the preference files.

 

Macintosh

Go to the:

HARD DRIVE > USERS > (username) > LIBRARY > APPLICATION SUPPORT > SMITH MICRO folder. Delete the entire Manga Studio folder located within there. The next time you launch Manga Studio you will need to reinsert the serial number.

If your operating system is hiding the HARD DRIVE > USERS > (username) > LIBRARY folder, then open up your Finder and click on the GO > GO TO FOLDER menu option. In the resulting window, type in

~/Library

Then click GO to be taken to that directory.

 

Windows XP

Go to the:

MY COMPUTER>LOCAL DISK(C:) >DOCUMENTS AND SETTINGS> (username) >APPLICATION DATA> E FRONTIER or SMITH MICRO folder. Delete the entire Manga Studio folder located within there. The next time you launch the software, you will need to reinsert the serial number for the software.

NOTE: the Application Data folder may be invisible by default - if you don't see it, please see the "Show hidden files and folders" section below.

 

Windows Vista, 7, or 8

Go to the:

START > COMPUTER >LOCAL DISK(C:) > USERS > (username) > APPDATA > ROAMING > E FRONTIER or SMITH MICRO folder. Delete the entire Manga Studio folder located within there. The next time you launch the software, you will need to reinsert the serial number for the software.

NOTE: the AppData folder may be invisible by default - if you don't see it, please see the "Show hidden files and folders" section below.
