Dear Karin and Britt,                               
    That worked! The machine I really need to change is off site but
I have an identical Mac here I use to run the Hasselblad. I tried it
and although there was no file in there because we hadn't used it for
measurement yet, once I pasted the file in there and restarted
Photoshop it worked fine. Thanks so much. This list is fabulous! You
just saved me heaps of work. :)Cheers,Geoff

I haven't customized my measurement settings so don't seem to have
this file, but try here:

Dear All,

	I was sent an updated file some time back but it turned out I had a
different extension tube on my 1.4x teleconverter. So there were
errors. I’ve just spent days checking and correcting where necessary
every setting.

	I now need to change these settings on a Mac used with our portable
system offsite.

	I believe I will have to do this manually, using the measurements
I’ve recorded but this will take many hours.

	By contrast this is how I was instructed to change the file on a
Windows system.

	Right click the new PS measurement file you have and select copy.

somewhere safe in the event you wish to revert back or need it to

	The file is called "Measurement Scales.psp".

	I checked with our IT guy who knows Macs (but is not a Photoshop
expert) but he didn't think there was a way of quickly installing it
on a Mac.

	I thought I would ask if any of you know of a way round this problem.
