Upgrading from 3.7 to 3.8 lost all my highlighting styles.

I just upgraded from 3.7 Base to 3.8 Base this morning and to my dismay, none of my editor highlight styles transferred over. I set up custom colors for everything which took a while due to Toad’s wonky color picker and inability to save customer colors to the color palette. Is there a way to transfer these over manually? At the very least, is there a config file somewhere in 3.7 that I can open and copy over the highlight style section to the 3.8 file?

The colors are saved in the files in this path.

C:\Users\dpeabody\AppData\Roaming\Quest Software\Toad Data Point 3.7\Templates\Languages

These should have been copied over if you chose to migrate your files from the last release. See if you can copy all of those files over to the similar dir for TDP 3.8

Thanks Debbie.
