I just created my 2nd Star Wars: The Old republic character, and I see that new characters are set to the default keybindings. I'd changed quite a few on my first character and don't want to have to manually reset them all.

Is there a way to copy over the keybindings from one character to another, either in the game or by copying/renaming files on my hard drive?

Key bindings seem to be stored on the server, so there is currently no way to copy them from one character to another. The INI files for each character only control chat colors and which custom channels you join (as well as a few other UI settings).

INI files are under: C:\Users\username\AppData\Local\SWTOR\swtor\settings

Bioware has mentioned that they're looking at ways to export/import key bindings, or copy them between characters, but there are no firm plans yet.

If you know where they said it, it would be nice to include the link. – svick Dec 23 '11 at 8:13
Just a heads up to anyone looking: nope, hasn't happened in over three years, so it's pretty much certain it won't happen, ever. – Jürgen A. Erhard Aug 31 at 23:53
