Did the file paths change, or are they identical to the old system?
If the latter, then all you need to do is copy the directory ~/.phenix
from the laptop to the iMac, and it should be happy.  If you did move
directories around, you need to import the project directories into a
new database.  To do this, select "Import project" from the "File"
menu, and pick a project directory - do this for each one.  It will
rewrite *some* paths to reflect the move, but is a little inconsistent
at the moment - this will be addressed very soon (along with moving
project directories on the same computer).  I would recommend
upgrading to the newest nightly build, since I've forgotten when
exactly some of these features were added.
