I have an imac. When I use Effects Lab Pro on the administrator account, all the presets show on the program and can be successfully used. But when I try to use the program on my preferred account, it does not have any of the presets. I copied the administrators app and placed it to my preferred account but there is still no difference. How do I get all the presets onto my preferred account?

The presets install into a directory in the Documents folder of the account used to install the software. (~/Documents/FXhome/EffectsLab Pro 1.5/preset)So if you switch to a different account, which can't access that directory, then the presets won't be available.

Correcting this is as easy as allowing the second account access to the necessary folders, or re-installing the presets into that account, by using the "Import FXpreset..." command.
