    So, you've decided to download the PTR, copy your character over, copy your interface folder and test out some new stuff, only to discover YOU HAVE TO SET ALL OF YOUR BARS AND ADDONS UP!!


    Have no fear, Peon is here to carry you.

    -First ensure that you have at least logged onto the PTR with the character that you want to play at least one time, to create the proper settings folders. Once you've done that, close your wow beta.

    -Go to your non-beta wow folder, go to the WTF folder, then your account name folder, the server folder for your character, and lastly the actual characters folder. Copy everything in this folder as shown below:

    -Now browse your wow beta folder for the same thing, WTF -> Account Name -> Server -> Character Folder. It might not be as straight forward as your normal wow folder, the account name was random. Other than that it was the same.

    -Once there, paste all the stuff you previously copied into the folder, and tell Windows to overwrite all files.

    That should be it, all your key binds, character specific macros and interface settings should have copied over.

    You either copied it to the wrong folder, or your wtf folder is really located somewhere else (%PUBLIC%\games\worldofwarcraft)

    Oh I figured out your issue. You need to take an additional step. Copy your "Saved Variables" folder which is just inside the account name folder. Not the one inside of the individual character folder.

    Dominos saves bars there.
