How can I backup my config? It is so easy to delete a Script that I worked many hours on! make me nervous haha.
Is there a way to backup the config as file?

Hi Behzad,

A couple of way :)
1 Scripts installed into Live contain a copy of the Script.json file. So if you do accidentally delete it, you can import it back in from there.
2 You can copy the config folder directly from your Home Directory > Control Surface Studio.
Inside the 'Control Surface Studio' folder contains a 'Script' and 'Controller' folder which contain all of your Scripts/Controllers respectively.

p.s. the next release of the App will add export buttons next to you Scripts & Controllers, which will make it super easy.
