Where does MadeToPrint store information

Preferences folder

MadeToPrint uses a folder in the users preferences section to store data, e.g. a logfile and the MadeToPrint jobs.

This preferences folder is a separate folder for each InDesign version, and also for each InDesign Server instance. The folder can be found here:


Windows (MadeToPrint InDesign Desktop)

%APPDATA%\axaio software\Adobe InDesign X\MadeToPrint Plug-In\

Windows (MadeToPrint InDesign Server)

%APPDATA%\axaio software\Adobe InDesign X Server\MadeToPrint_Plugin_YYYYY\

macOS (MadeToPrint InDesign Desktop)

~/Library/Preferences/axaio software/Adobe InDesign X/MadeToPrint Plug-In/

macOS (MadeToPrint InDesign Server)

~/Library/Preferences/axaio software/Adobe InDesign X Server/MadeToPrint_Plugin_YYYYY/


where X is the InDesign / InDesign Server version number (as in "About InDesign…", e.g. InDesign 2020 is version 15), and YYYYY is the port number used to start InDesign Server.

MadeToPrint Jobs

In the preferences folder mentioned above, there is another sub folder called Preferences. This is the folder where MadeToPrint stores the MadeToPrint Printjobs, Autojobs and configurations. If you are working with configurations, each configuration is a separate subfolder, which itself stores the jobs defined in this configuration.


MTP_Settings.cfg

This is a file in XML format, where MadeToPrint stores all print jobs defined in the Standard section.


MTPAutoSettings.cfg

This is a file in XML format, where MadeToPrint stores all auto jobs defined in the Auto section.


If you see the error message "The version of the MadeToPrint Settings could be wrong. Please rename or delete the settings XML file." on MadeToPrint startup, it refers to those .cfg files.

You may fix the file by opening it in a plaintext editor and remove all illegal characters (e.g. "¿") in front of </prefs>.

MadeToPrint Logfile

MadeToPrint writes into a logfile that might help to find more information about an error. The logfile is called MadeToPrint.log and is located in the MadeToPrint Prefences folder in a subfolder called Logfiles

Once the logfile exceeds 10MB, it is moved to MadeToPrint_001.log (if this file already exists, it is deleted before) and a new MadeToPrint.log is written. This ensures to have the latest 10MB of logs available at all times, but also don't take too much disk space.
