Is there a way to copy all the projects, connections and settings of Aptana Studio3 on one computer to another one running the exact same version of Aptana Studio3.

The projects actually only exists of remote connections, and no local files.

Does anyone have a walk through or guide?

If you are working on a mac, the path for the connections is as follows:

~/Documents/Aptana Studio 3 Workspace/.metadata/.plugins/com.aptana.core.io

Are the passwords for FTP connections stored in the keychain?

Unfortunately Aptana doesn't save passwords in that file. Someone knows where it stores the passwords? –  Fred K Dec 24 '13 at 16:48
