With the (under menu "Collection") "Collection Hint Options... " one can edit the pop-up window (=hints...) on items in the Collection List to one's delight. So I did. I now want to transfer my design to another DVDp install, on my other PC.

Problem is: whereas there are lots of options to load a report for this hints option, there seem to be no options to save it to some explicit filename somewhere. Perusing the underlying DVDp files I also do not see the saved version in some guise.

Anyone knows where to find/retrieve this hidden lay-out design -- or which procedure to follow?

Many thanks in advance !
Eric

The "Collection Hints" are part of the Layout.

Under
View -> Save Layout...
you can either save everything or explicitly choose only "Custom Collection Hint Design".

On the same section, directly under "Save Layout", you can also "Lock Layout" so you don't accidentally lose your changes.

Found it ! Thanks to you all.

Well hidden by the way. One would expect this as an option in the "Edit Skin" menu. And it's awkward that it is saved as a .dpl file, while various buttons (in Edit Skin as well as the immediate Collection Hint Option window) suggest it could be loaded from the Reports folder as a .dpr file.
Seems there is still room for improvement in version 4.1.
