I spent significant time and effort to get the user interface for v2013a set up exactly the way I wanted it. Plus, my use of matlab is ongoing. What I was doing yesterday using 2013a, I want to continue today using 2014a.
A migration of all user-related info ought to be about the first thing that matlab does when upgrading between versions. But it does not. Therefore there ought to be something inthe installation manual, or at least a README file that explains how to make the yearly transition seamless. If there is something there, I cannot not find it.
According such documentation as I could find, all one has to do is delete the 2014a prefs folder,
and matlab will automatically recreate it and migrate everything from
to the new version.
Well, of course it does not. I've tried manually copying the contents of the 2013a folder to the 2014a folder, but that results in a huge spewing of java errors on the command window when I attempt to open the history window. It appears that nothing at all is migrated.
So, how do I do migrate ALL my settings, histories, layouts, paths, etc. from one version to the next?
