I have several favorites defined in v1 of Terminals. I don't see an option to import them into v2, and they were not picked up when I installed (probably because I installed to a different folder). Suggestions?

Check this online documentation, how to work with application files: http://terminals.codeplex.com/wikipage?title=Backup%20and%20restore%20settings%20files&referringTitle=User%20documentation.

Or try this:
1. back up application files in version 2 directory
2. copy data files from older version into the version 2 directory
3. start the application. During startup the files have to be updated

If it doesn't work:
1. Restore from backup ;-)
2. Start older version and export favorites into an xml file
3. Start latest version and from files menu select import to import from file created in step 2.

Oh great. That worked like a charm.
