Create & Restore a Backup of Your Toolbar

When running the new installer for the TTP.ToolBarPro, your toolbar’s layout – stored in the ToolBarCore.xml file in your Documents\NinjaTrader 8\TTP folder – and your toolbar’s button templates – stored in the ToolBarButtonTemplates.xml file in the same folder – will be overwritten. If you want to keep your personalized Toolbar layout, you must create a ToolBarPro backup file that can be restored later.

Creating a backup of your Toolbar Layout

Open the ToolBarPro Settings UI. 

  • Right-click on the header of the ToolBarPro’s main panel – the black bar above the buttons, to open the ‘Settings’ UI.
  • You will then see the ToolBarPro Settings window popup.
  • Navigate to the ‘Utilities’ menu and select ‘Backup.’ This will create a .tb8 backup file within the directory \Documents\NinjaTrader 8\TTP\Backups containing your toolbar’s layout with all your drawn objects on the charts.

Restoring a backup of your Toolbar Layout

  • Open the Toolbar Settings UI. 
  • Right-click on the header of the ToolBarPro’s main panel – the black bar above the buttons
  • Navigate to -> Utilities -> Restore
  • Your toolbar backup files are located in your Documents\NinjaTrader 8\TTP\Backups directory (pictured below).
  • Select the .tb8 backup file you wish to restore, then click the “Open” button to load.
  • You will see a pop-up message as shown below:
  • Click “Yes” to include all the Toolbar Drawing objects previously saved in the Backup file, or “No” if you would like to load the Toolbar layout without any drawing objects.
