Yes, when you update, TPC looks for a previous installation and prompts you to copy your user settings forward to the new release.
You can manually redo this copy forward anytime with the following steps
– Tools, Program Settings, Program Data tab
– Copy program data from folder, locate the version of TPC to copy from (i.e. TPC Desktop 2019) and choose Select Folder
– TPC will display the prompt to copy those files forward. Choose Yes.
– See if your old settings are now available in the new version.
I am assuming from your question that you want your Traverse View formats. These are in the file UserTraverseFormats.dat. You can always copy this manually in Windows File Explorer.
