Sync settings across multiple machines

Assume I can run PathFinder on my three machines w/ one license. If that's not the case, hit the "Resolved" button now.

If that's acceptable use, what I'd like to do is work through the many hundreds of settings for PathFinder 6 and then either clone or sync that info to my other two machines. Can that be done? If so, how? I'm quite comfortable moving files between machines or whatever might be required on a sysadmin level. Thanks.

    Path Finder doesn't have this option but some users are using symlinks on the Preferences folder of some apps to point to a Dropbox folder where it keeps it in sync.
    You can post any suggestion you have on the Feedback Page, as well.

    OK on the "we don't support it" but can you answer this question? The path to that preferences file would be this:

    ~/Library/Application Support/Path Finder/Settings/DataStore/

    I would back up all files related to Path Finder with the probable exception of caches.
