Where are the coverage filters stored and is it possible to move them to another solution

Each time we branch code for a new release, we create a new set of solutions to work with.  Each time we create a new solution, I have to setup the filters again for dotCover.  Is there anyway to export/copy the filters from one solution to another?

Hello, Russell!

To store coverage filters we use so called "settings layers". Global coverage filters are stored in "this computer" layer. Solution filters are stored in "team-shared solution" layer.
To manage those layers you can use Settings Layers dialog box (ReSharper -> Manage Options).
For example, you can export "FilterSettingsManager" settings to a file. And then import them in a new solution.
From the same dialog box you can find where those settings files are physically stored.
