after moving to new mac plots doe not show data

After moving my indigo installation to a new mac indigoPlotD seems to run but the plot files that are created show no data and the log shows:

/Users/Rabe/Documents/INDIGOplotD/gnu/TemperaturePlotII-minute-S1.gnu has no lines defined -- dont forget to click CONFIRM before you save the lines and plots, ignore this warning if just created


This type of message is shown for all the plots I made earlier.
Also in the select/define data menu I don't see any variables. It seems to me that indigoPlotD cannot find the definitions for the variables somehow. Did I miss to copy some files? Do I have to point indigoPlotD to the data somehow?
The path fort the indigo installation stayed the same for old and new machine except the HD name is different.

do you have a directory ~/indigo/indigoplotd?
THAT directory has to be copied. All defs are in there

if anything is missing do
/menu/select config to restore
after you copied the directory.

Thank you for the quick response!

I have the indigoPlotD directory in the Documents directory where also the indigo database file is. But I do not have the parent directory Indigo. I think I never had it. It is necessary?
And Yes I copied the whole directory from the old installation.

Seem that I (actualy more you) solved it. I checked the IndigoPlotD directory and not all files where there from the old install. It could be that the transfer was interrupted and I did not realize.
Thanks, looks good now.

in newer OSX the ~/documents directory gets synced through iCloud with other MACs. Hence I moved the directory to ~/indigo to avoid heavy traffic to iCloud .
