How do install TexStudio so that it keeps all of my settings from TexMakerX or will it simply overwrite the old program?

I did it a few hours ago …

Just download the texstudio.dmg and drag the application to to you app folder it don’t overwirte TeXMakerX. You can start it as a second editor but it uses the tmx preferences. I guess (didn’t tried it yet) you can delete the old tmx app without loosing the preferences (if you only delete the app form the application folder without AppCleaner or something like that)

I found a little bug: TeXStudio doesn’t find it’s icon.
Fix: Right-click > Show Package contens. Open Info-plist and change texmakerx.icns to texstudio.icns. Save.
