So I have spend quite a bit of time reassigning F1 to F12 to mapinfo tools that suits our work line using Command Editor. Now I need to do same for couple of other computers. I was wondering if I can easily export this shortcut settings to another computer.

For MapInfo Pro 15.2 the key gestures are stored in the Command.xml file that you can find in the application data folder:


Each MapInfo Pro command is represented with most of its attributes as you can see here:

<MapInfoProCommand MenuId="109" Name="SaveCurrentWorkspace">
    <DisplayText>Save Workspace</DisplayText>
    <MenuItemText>Save Workspace</MenuItemText>
    <MenuItemToggleText>Save Workspace</MenuItemToggleText>
    <ToolTipDescription>Save Current Workspace (Ctrl+Shift+S)</ToolTipDescription>
    <ToolTipText>Save current session as a named configuration.</ToolTipText>
    <ToolTipDisabledText>This command is disabled. It should always be enabled.</ToolTipDisabledText>

You can copy this file to another pc where MapInfo Pro is installed and so share the key gestures.
