In XLS Padlock, your project settings are automatically saved when you click.

Project settings are stored in an XLS Padlock project file whose extension is .XPLP. The project file lies in the same folder as your source Excel workbook file.

When you open XLS Padlock again, settings are automatically restored.

In the App menu button ,  you have additional project commands for importing/exporting settings as templates.

For instance, you can import all settings from another project file (.XPLP) thanks to the “Load settings from template” file.


Importing a template will overwrite all settings, except the output path field. Use it with care. Especially if you allow save for your workbooks: we recommend that you backup the Application GUID and Application Secret Key before importing a template.



Similarly, you can export all current settings to a template file for reuse.
