2. Quit QuarkXPress 2015.
3. Go to the Preferences folder and locate the file "XPXT_XCPS_1.resdata" (it's in the folder ResData/XPress Preferences in your main preferences folder). It contains all your presets.
4. Copy it.
5. Go to the other workstation and put the copied file into the preferences folder of the new QuarkXPress 2015 (at the same place), replacing the existing file.
