Carrying forward predictive typing files in Profile

Cameron Peters

For my old friends/ProFile users, I am posting an answer to a question that I have fielded many times over the last 10 years, which is:

How can I carry forward my ProFile predictive typing files from year to year?

The answer, for posterity, is here:

  1. Make sure ProFile is closed.
  2. Find the typing files… usually C:\Users\<user name>\AppData\Roaming\GreenPoint\ProFile\
  3. If 2012T1.TYPING already exists, delete it.
  4. Select the 2011T1.TYPING file
  5. Right click and select “copy” from the context menu.
  6. Paste the file back into this folder… it will now be called 2011T1 – COPY.TYPING
  7. Press F2 and rename the copied file 2012T1.TYPING
  8. Restart ProFile.

Presto… your 2011 predictive typing will work in 2012.

This tip is offered without warranty but should work for any of the ProFile modules.
