Default Reaper portable install doesn't keep custom colours

Hello Reaper Mac people!

I've posted this question elsewhere in the forum and didn't get a reply, so I'm thinking this might be a better place to ask.

I have a portable install of Reaper that I bring with me when using studios other than my own, it works great - really pleased we have this capability!

One thing that it doesn't seem to bring over are my custom colours....if I've previously coloured tracks in my own system the colours are there, but if I'm not on my own rig using the portable install and I try to colour code my tracks using my custom colours, they're not there (I'm guessing the colours that are there are possibly the default ones, not sure).

If I use the portable install on my own system, my custom colours are there. Not a deal breaker, but I'd love to know how to bring my custom colours along in my portable install so they're available on other systems.

As a side note, I do transfer over my entire configuration from my own system, and it seems to bring pretty much everything over no problem....except for the colours.

Any ideas, or work arounds? Was thinking it might be a Mac-specific issue.

Thanks in advance!

The custom colors are stored by macOS in ~/Library/Colors/NSColorPanelSwatches.plist.

Thanks very much for that, @cfillion, I had a feeling it might be a system wide setting!
