Transferring Styles and Clip Art Collections from Artboard 1 to Artboard 2: Mac App Store Version

If you are an Artboard 1 user and are upgrading to Artboard 2, you may have customized User Collections that you’d like to use in Artboard 2.

If you purchase Artboard 2 directly from us, the application is not sandboxed and will automatically import user collections and templates from any older version, including the Mac App Store version. YOU CAN STOP HERE, YOU’RE DONE!

If you purchase Artboard 2 from the Mac App Store, it is sandboxed and is therefore unable to automatically import user collections and templates. This is an inherent limitation imposed by sandboxing required by the Mac App Store.
