I've tried to find a post on this and can't find any that are useful to me.

I'm trying to import my overview setting I made with the "Eve Overview Creator."
I can't find any eve system folders on my computer (mac genius I am not so maybe its a simple thing I'm missing)
I was attempting to find where I should put the xml file by exporting my current overview settings, but when I try to export I get a "your settings will be at P:\My Documents\EVE\Overview\BloodyHell.xml which doesn't exist.

What am I doing wrong?

Export your settings to the suggested directory from within the client.

On mac, the windows drive letter (P:) is placed by the EVE client under the following path:

/users/your accountname/Library/Preferences/Eve Online Preferences/p_drive/

From this location you should see windows directory names.

Another question, once there where do u place the file?

In the 'Overview' directory. If its not there, go into Eve, export your current overview. That will create the directory.

I did a fresh install on a new mac. My old one With < Tyrannis, when I exported the overview, it created the folder in the location referenced above and was able to import the backup overview xml no problem.

The new one, with the fresh incarna install, does not create the folder in that location as far as i can tell

Anyone have any ides?
