How to install bibisco on another PC/Mac

First thing first: bibisco is a desktop application that stores data on your PC/Mac.

Therefore, there are no copies of your work on the web: neither at bibisco.com nor at Gumroad, the e-commerce platform that distributes bibisco.

So to install bibisco on another PC/Mac you have to do these operations:

  1. Transfer your projects from the current PC/Mac to the new PC/Mac.

  2. Download bibisco again to the new PC/Mac.

  3. Import your projects in bibisco in the new PC/Mac.

  4. (Optional) Uninstall bibisco in the old PC/Mac.

1) Transfer your projects from the current PC/Mac to the new PC/Mac

If your project directory is already synchronized with a cloud drive (Google Drive, Dropbox, etc...) you don't have to do anything. If you want to know how to synchronize your projects with a cloud drive take a look here.

If your project directory is NOT synchronized with a cloud drive you have to export your projects as archive and transfer the exported files on the new PC/Mac.

2) Download bibisco again to the new PC/Mac

Download bibisco again to the new PC/Mac following these instructions.

3) Import your projects in bibisco on the new PC/Mac.

If your project directory is already synchronized with a cloud drive (Google Drive, Dropbox, etc.), when bibisco starts select the directory of the new PC/Mac synchronized with your cloud drive as the project directory.

If your project directory is NOT synchronized with a cloud drive you have to import your project archive files (.bibisco2 extension) in bibisco installation on the new PC/Mac.

4) (Optional) Uninstall bibisco in the old PC/Mac
