Location of Alias Files

Hi there, I don’t have much experience with Rhino - I’m a junior sysadmin at a firm with a few Rhino users.

Recently we upgraded a users’ computer, and only after the fact did the user discover that he would need to import/export all of his Rhino Aliases, options, etc.

My question - do the Rhino Aliases exist in a file somewhere that I can copy over for my users? While I could try to educate them on exporting/importing the files, at least at first I think it would be easier for me to make the move.

I see that Rhino exports it’s Aliases in text format, so are the default aliases stored in a .txt file somewhere?

Any help would be appreciated, thank you very much.

Hi Andre- the aliases at runtime do not depend on an external file that the user can easily access, no - they are stored in the Windows registry, but you can export aliases to a text file and import them, as a way of transferring settings or for safe-keeping.


Currently not, they are stored in the registry. Specifically this key:

HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\McNeel\Rhinoceros\5.0x64\Scheme: Default\Options\AliasList

The key will vary if you have x86 or x64 installed and if you have created a different scheme (few users do).


Thank you very much, this is the info I was looking for. Cheers!

Thank you Helvetosaur, I appreciate it!

Man you Rhino forum guys are fast.
