Default Restore Preferences and copy them to new iMac


recently my iMac crashed and I can not start it any more. All I have is a time machine backup.

Can I restore all my Reaper Preferences from that backup manually and where are the files I need to copy to my new iMac Pro?

Can you help me out please?

Or do I have to set all Prefs again on a new installation of Reaper?

Just install Reaper on the new Mac, as usual.
Go to the menu Options -> Show REAPER resource path in explorer/finder...
The finder will open with the path of the resource-folder of Reaper.

Now, find the accompanying folder in your time-machine-backup and simply copy its contents into the folder that got opened by Reaper.

Restart Reaper and it should work again.
Use you/she/her, when contacting me, please. Thanks :) Not mentoring via PMs, sorry.
