I immediately noticed my custom key bindings didn't translate up to the new version.

Also, I'm already loving the new multiple cursors.
Woot!

This still doesn't work in B2. For example, I have list-tags set to ctrl-shift-t. This isn't available after it copied up the v18 config.

What is your emulation?

I'm using CUA. I tried a vanilla v18 and imported only my key options and the upgrade to v19 did work. I've attached my whole v18 exported config. If you import this into a vanilla v18 and upgrade to v19 the keys won't come with.

It appears the favorites in options don't come as well.

Did the operation appear to finish successfully?

It seems to; it goes pretty quick though. I should note that the v18 has the latest patch but the config is blank (deleted) in my example. No luck reproducing it with your machine?

Can you send me your vusrdefs.e?

I initially misread what you did, and tried to import straight to v19.  This resulted in a Slick-C stack, which will be fixed for the next beta.

I suspect the problem you have is that your vusrdefs.e is too large for our macro compiler to compile.  You can transfer your keys by importing them, but you will get a Slick-C stack (although in my case the keys seemed to transfer first).  In beta 3 this will work.

The code size too large problem has already been dealt with in 19.0, the vusrdefs.e file is split into two files so future users will not get this.  Your vusrdefs.e was generated by version 18.0.

We are talking about another possible solution to this, but I'm not sure if we will get it in or not.

I was able to get my keys by going to the actual Key Bindings area and export then import the CUA.xml from there (from v18 to v19 respectively). That seemed to work fine. For major releases for any software program I usually try to rebuild a configuration file  from the new version default via side-by-side comparison. But until v19 is more stable I'm not really able to dedicate that time.

vusrdefs.e is attached from v18. I do have my own defined coloring scheme that looks to be saved there.(?) Also a couple new defined languages.

Yes, this has the code size too large problem.  I'm working on a way around it for the next beta drop.
