How to Save PAINT TOOL SAI BRUSH SETTINGS or Back Up
(im using Paint Tool Sai v1.2.0)
I Recently have figured out about How to back up my PAINT TOOL SAI Brush Settings.
After backup your settings you can using it on another PC.
My first try, i lost all my brush settings T_T. ( Please Don't do anything stupid like me, cuz im really regret it ) (all my settings gone because i download someone "toolnrm" folder settings, I paste it all and replace it.)
I forgot to back up my "ADJUST SETTING TOOLS" by manually take a screenshot using "Print Screen SysRq" from your keyboard. You can screenshot your brush settings and gather it each slot tools.
So my suggest is, don't forget to back up first your "ADJUST SETTING TOOLS" by manually take a screenshot your adjusting tools.

THE BIGGEST PROBLEM
If you open your Paint Tool Sai installation folder, you can see a folder called "toolnrm". Inside "toolnrm" folder contain all tool brush settings. You can save your tool from 00.ini until 63.ini.
To save your Paint Tool Sai slot tools .ini
You should run your sai.exe as administrator.
"Right-click sai.exe - properties - on Compatibility Tab - Privilege Level - Give a Tick on "Run this program as an administrator" - click OK".
If you believe you are using all slot but .ini not showing up, for example just showing 00.ini until 09.ini, it means you are not run your sai.exe as administrator. So run your sai.exe as admin.
You can see the different if you run sai.exe as admin or not.
Make sure to take a screenshot your precious tools slot settings because, you can adjust it again and again if your tools settings gone/lost like me.
IF YOU ACCIDENTLY DELETED YOUR 00.ini until 63.ini
There is no way to get back your tools settings
your slot will become default tools. or even empty.
So be careful. As my first suggest, back up it manually by take a screenshot, gather the slot one by one. After you run sai.exe as admin You can adjust all tools by seeing your backup screenshot.
If it succed your tools will show up even after you close you sai.exe and all settings on 00.ini until 63.ini will show up on "toolnrm" depends on what slot you are using.
If you want to using the brush settings to other laptop or pc, just copy the "toolnrm". Also don't forget to run it as admin on your other laptop or pc you wanna use.
Hope you can save your brush.
