One feature I pretty consistently see requested is the ability to copy your keybindings from one character to another, so I'm happy to say with the release of 4.0 you'll be able to do just that.

When 4.0 launches you'll notice a new tab in the preference window labeled "Keybinding Import/Export" from there you'll be able to save out your current keybindings to a file which you can then load on another character. When you save the keybinding they'll show up in a list which you can then select to preview and load those saved bindings. The list of keybindings you can import is shared across all your characters and saved locally on your computer. The keybindings are saved out to an XML format much like the UI Profiles are, so you'll be able to share them with friends and such.

Sounds great!

Any way this functionality can be extended to other UI settings? Having to go in and adjust things such as chat, hotbar cooldown visuals, and map settings can be a bit frustrating to do on a character by character basis.

I do this currently by going into the settings folder and copying the settings from one character's file and pasting them into the other.
