All customized settings have been reset to default

If customized settings such as materials or tools disappear and restored to default, check the folder where the settings are saved.

If you have backed up your settings to the cloud, you can also restore them from there.


Check the status of the settings folder.

Clip Studio Paint setting information is stored in the [CELSYS] folder in the following location:


● For Windows

C:\user\(user name)\Documents\CELSYS


● For macOS

Macintosh HD/Users/(Your user name)/Library/CELSYS


The [CELSYS] folder is created in the above location when Clip Studio is started for the first time.

This folder is not automatically deleted even after uninstalling.


Its creation date and time are generally the date when Clip Studio is started for the first time.

Check to see if the creation date and time matches Clip Studio’s start date.


Note: In Windows, you can check the creation date and time by right-clicking the [CELSYS] folder and opening Properties.

Note: For macOS, you can check the creation date by right-clicking the [CELSYS] folder and opening Get Info.


If the creation date and time is different from the start date, Clip Studio will create a new [CELSYS] folder in Documents.


Check if the folder name has been changed or if it has been moved.


If the name has been changed, rename the newly created [CELSYS] folder in Document to [1CELSYS], then rename the original folder to [CELSYS].


If you have moved it to another location, rename the newly created [CELSYS] folder in Document to [1CELSYS], then move the original [CELSYS] folder back into Document.


Note: In macOS, move it to [Library].



Restore settings backed up to the cloud.

If you have backed up your settings to the Clip Studio cloud, you can also restore them from there.

Note: If you have never saved the settings to the cloud, they cannot be restored.
