I asked Chat GPT how to copy settings to another computer

I need to copy the setting to another computer and thought I’d ask Chat GPT. The prompt is: how do you copy the setting of rhino 3d from another computer. I haven’t tried it yet, but it sounds good?

To copy the settings of Rhino 3D from one computer to another, you can follow these steps:

  1. On the computer that has the settings you want to copy, open Rhino 3D and go to “Options” in the “Tools” menu.
  2. In the “Options” dialog box, select the “Export” tab.
  3. Click the “Export all” button to export all the settings, or select specific settings categories to export.
  4. Choose a location to save the exported settings file and give it a name.
  5. Transfer the exported settings file to the other computer using a USB drive, email, or file-sharing service.
  6. On the other computer, open Rhino 3D and go to “Options” in the “Tools” menu.
  7. In the “Options” dialog box, select the “Import” tab.
  8. Click the “Import” button and browse to the location where you saved the exported settings file.
  9. Select the file and click “Open” to import the settings.
  10. Once the import is complete, you should see the copied settings in Rhino 3D on the other computer.

Note that some settings may not transfer if they are specific to the hardware or software configuration of the original computer. In that case, you may need to manually adjust those settings on the other computer.

Looks like they crawled this Wiki page:

The Wiki has more detail and isn’t paraphrased too.
It’s unfortunate the AI tool doesn’t provide reference links.

Thank you for the link. I completely agree with you it should cite references/sources like any paper/journal, or Wikipedia.

When asked about the source:
As an AI language model, my knowledge comes from a variety of sources, including but not limited to:

  1. Online resources, such as websites, databases, and academic papers.
  2. Books, journals, and other publications.
  3. Open-source software and repositories.
  4. Crowdsourced data, such as Wikipedia and other collaborative knowledge bases.
  5. My training data, which includes a large corpus of text data from the internet.

I do not have a single source for any specific information I provide, as I draw upon my vast database of knowledge to answer questions.

With rhino, just type the word you want to do in the command line:
