Relationship between *.ktf and *.komodotool files

I ran into problems with the toolbox. Tools I created were disappearing etc. I eventually traced it to lag in dropbox syncing. Along the way I was looking at the .ktf and .komodotool files. They seem to have some common purposes and a .ktf file appears to be able to subsume komodotool file information.

Can someone give me a brief explanation of the purposes of the two file types.


.ktf is the new file format introduced in Komodo 11, .komodotool is the old format. So if it concerns a Komodo 11 profile folder you should be able to delete the .komodotool variant (though it might be worth keeping a backup around).

Thanks - that was my guess.
