Where did the bookmarks go?

I used a tip from this forum to copy over my existing bookmarks to a new project with the same framework by copying the .idea/workspace.xml file.

This worked great, then i went to roll them into another project and ....there're not there anymore, they must be kept in some binary format now, not xml?

Is this trick no longer possible?

Since 2019.2, most part of the workspace settings is no longer stored in project ./idea/workspace.xml file. Now, you may find these in IDE /config/workspace directory. There is a bunch of XML files, each of those represents a specific project and has a name like "1RFJ8kd3rUM8ZxxF3awwDnKAyL0.xml".

The name is generated after the project ID that you may find in project ./idea/workspace.xml, f.e.:

<component name="ProjectId" id="1RFJ8kd3rUM8ZxxF3awwDnKAyL0" />

Sorry for a little bit complicated explanation but I hope it helps.
