Importing configurations to Mapeo Desktop
To start using a custom configuration, you'll need to import the new configuration file into Mapeo Desktop. For more on configurations, see Custom configurations.
Download or copy the custom configuration file (eg.
example_project.mapeosettings) onto your computer. Note which folder the file was saved in.
For sending configuration files (
.mapeosettings) between computers that have an
internet connection, we recommend using email or the
Telegram Desktop app, as other messaging applications have problems with this file format. You can also share a link to a
Drive directory where the configuration is located.
If you have
no internet connection, you can copy the file from a computer using a
USB drive or send the file via
Bluetooth. For more on these methods, see: Sharing files between devices.

.mapeosettings) you want to import. Click on the file, then click Open. You may see a white screen for a few seconds while the configuration changes.
