Importing and exporting custom optimization settings profiles

Custom optimization settings profiles can be exported from an NXPowerLite Desktop installation and imported to other installations of NXPowerLite Desktop on different machine(s). This is not supported directly in the application but can be achieved by following the steps below.

See NXPowerLite Desktop optimization profiles for download for a selection of frequently used profiles.

 This article is only applicable to version 8 or above of NXPowerLite Desktop 8. Please contact us if you would like to do this in earlier versions.

Create a custom profile to export 

  1. Select New optimize profile... from the Optimize profile drop-down.

  2. Select all the settings for each file type, give the profile a name and save the profile.

  3. Now you will see that profile in the Optimize profile drop-down list on the main dialog.
