Hallo
under PF7 I had a Favorite folder, which shows Shortcuts in the sidebar under Favorites, this folder was located under:
/Users/f/Library/Favorites (where f is my User Name). Now this folder seems not anymore used. All my PF7 favorites are gone.

Where is the acutal folder, from which the Favorites are taken under PF8.2?
I could then just drag the still existing shortcuts from the old Favorites folder to the new location, if that would work.
Thanks
frank

    Hi Frank, 

    Unfortunately, simply dragging the preferences files won't work here, they differ since Sidebar was re-written. 
    You can save Sidebar preferences now via gear button next to the "Sidebar" header.

    Too late, I am already on PF8, so saving the Sidebar prefs wont help.
    Please tell me, WHERE is the actual folder where the favorites are saved?
    Or which file? Is it a database now? Please tell me, how to edit etc.

    Hi Frank, 

    Saving the Sidebar preferences as profiles is available only in PF8. 
    Unfortunately, I can't provide you with the exact location. 
    There is a user interface in the app for managing Sidebar preferences.
