Description

currently if I want to share a single preset it requires the following steps.

  • Create style for the preset and export it
  • Import style
  • Apply style to image
  • Go to lighttable mode and save the preset

This actually doesnt even give you a complete import of all the settings in the preset:

"Auto apply" and "only show" parts aren't part of the style and therefor not transfered.

The 2.6.1 release notes mention the option to import/export presets: great!

https://darktable.gitlab.io/doc/en/presets.html
The manual states: "Double clicking on a user-defined preset will open a menu. This allows editing the preset or saving it to an external .dtpreset file."

From the preferences menu settings, I can only import presets (see screenshot); not export.
And double clicking on a user-defined preset does nothing?

I'm sure I'm missing something really obvious. Please help me out.

Well it works for me on Linux. Are you on Windows?

#6 Updated by Rob Oo 8 months ago

No, Debian, using https://software.opensuse.org/download.html?project=graphics:darktable&package=darktable.

Could you please post a screenshot where I should look for the export-button?

#7 Updated by Pascal Obry 8 months ago

Sure, in the preferences, I have a preset +2 and when I double-click on the line I get this dialog with the [save] button.

Thanks a lot Pascal , I succeeded!
I guess it was the mouseover text ("description or further information"; see screenshot) that confused me totally. Never would have thought of that to be the place to enter a filename.
Plus, I expected an "export" button somewhere in the window.

Thanks again, Rob
