I know you want to use the new beta version of Smaart, but you haven’t found time, yet. This 3-step hack will have you up and running in about 5 minutes.
- In Smaart v8, Config > Manage Configurations > Current Config > Save As.
- In Finder, ⇧⌘G then ~/Documents/Smaart v8/Config and copy the config file you just saved.
- ⇧⌘G then ~/Documents/Smaart v8/Beta Config and paste it.
- In Smaart v8 Beta, Config > Manage Configurations > Stored Configs > Recall.
Now all of the settings you worked for years to customize will be imported and you can start working immediately instead of starting from scratch.

Bonus tip: If you’re ever struggling with Smaart and you just can’t find the problem, save your current config then try Restore Defaults in Config Management. You’ll have to rebuild everything from scratch, but it might be faster then going through every little setting until you find the problem. If it doesn’t fix the problem, you can always restore your saved configuration.
