Export - Import of settings

Hi all,
I am running the latest build (7318) on two systems but when I export my
settings from one machine it is not imported into the second. The second
on appears to import and shuts down IntelliJ but when it restarts the
setting have not been changed. Bummer darn.

Thanks

I had the same with Mac. Also plugins are downloaded but they don't
appear in plugin tab.

I just tried export from 7318 and import into 7318 and it worked for me. On previous builds it wasn't working for me. When it didn't work before, there were no errors anywhere I could find.

Looks like Something was fixed in 7315:
Cannot import settings from IntelliJ 6.0.5

Did you check IDEA log to see if there were any errors? File Jiras if you can find anything. Or just file a Jira with your settings.jar attached. Jetbrains needs to nail all these import problems otherwise there may be alot more frustated users once this is released.

Also, you can try exporting/importing only part of the settings to see if that helps.
