I am trying to import overview settings. I have read all of the mac forums and have tried the latest advice which is to find an eve folder in library>application support but it doesn't exist. Cunningly, I exported my overview settings with an unusual filename so that I could find it on my mac. This worked a bit as the setting is present in the 'import settings' view, but I can't find it. Casn anyone help with this? I am running Lion OS and Incarna Version: 7.10.273475. Thanks.

Are you having trouble finding the library folder?

Here is a thread to cover you if that is your issue.

Library is hidden by default in Lion, search for one of the 567567575 threads on here or the google machine to un hide your library folder

Gunther, you're a star! I looked in Mac forums and it seems that the library folder is hidden by default in Lion OS. The solution to my problem was:

Open the Mac Utilities folder
Launch the 'Terminal' application
Paste this into the Terminal screen:
chflags nohidden ~/Library/
Hit return

The library folder then appears in Finder

Then you go to:

/users/your accountname/Library/Preferences/Eve Online Preferences/p_drive/My Documents/Eve/Overview

Paste your settings file in here, in my case is used 'Brother Benthor Overview 2.4.xml', which you can find in this overview settings thread:

I hope this helps other Mac users in the future.

Cheers

this is probably a *dumb* question, but how do you export your overview settings? I know where to find them in windows, but no on mac...

it is exactly the same, little button on the very top left of you overview, option near the bottom to import or export your overview settings
