How to import the favorites.txt file to another machine

Hi I have exported my favorites in intellij to favorites.txt using the export icon but cannot figure out how to import the favorites.txt file to another installation of intellij idea on a second machine?

Unfortunately, there is no simple way to import such data automatically.
As workaround you can copy your settings file .idea/workspace.xml from one machine to another.
Actually you need only section <component name="FavoritesManager"> with all its content.
This approach is too "low-level", but it's the only way I know.
