    Just a note: A file named "com.phaseone.(...)" appears to exist on my Mac only as "com.phaseone.mediapro.plist", whereas it seems the according preference files for CaptureOne are stored in the user library folder, too – but named differently: "captureone" instead of "phaseone":

    This is also mentioned in the article.

    If you run Capture One 20 and later versions, this will be .../com.captureone.captureone[number]/...

    Running this command (on a Mac) removes/resets all the Batch Image Rename presets. Can you tell me where these are stored so that I can back them up first?

  • Lily

    Hi Michael,

    The preference file is stored in ~/Library/Preferences/.

    Hi I'm trying to do this, but being on an M1 machine, the Terminal is asking for a bunch of things that may potentially mess up my login settings:

    The default interactive shell is now zsh.

    To update your account to use zsh, please run `chsh -s /bin/zsh`.

    I need help with this...
