Migrate iLogic Snippets Between Versions

@ClintBrown3D Autodesk Inventor migrate iLogic custom snippets

The “Migrate Settings” tool in Inventor 2020 does a really good job of pulling through most of the settings that you need from Inventor 2019 (or earlier), but it does not bring over any custom iLogic Snippets that you have created.
The good news, is that this is really easy to do manually.
From any iLogic rule in Inventor 2019, click on the “Custom” tab in “Snippets” and then choose “Save custom snippets to a new file“.

This will merge any changes from the default snippets .XML file, and effectively import your customisations.

The final, and most important step, is to save these new settings. You will need to save the new XML file somewhere safe, I have placed mine in C:\Autodesk.
