I apologize if these issues have been covered elsewhere, but I searched and could not find answers.
I have these problems with MuLab:

1) I'm using different computers at different locations and times. To help me stay organized, I have an iCloud Drive subscription as a common storage area I can access from the PCs. The problem with this is MuLab does not recognize the location of iCloud Drive. I can only save or recall songs from local drives. Ok, so the work around is to copy the file from the local drive to the iCloud drive, then copy the icloud file to the local drive of the other machine I want to work with, which results in this problem...

2) When I do this the presets for the VST devices are gone. They seem to be set back to some default state for the VSTs even though I clicked the "Save and then close" option when closing the song. This means I have to go through the process of setting up the presets over again after the transfer.

If I'm missing something obvious, could someone please point out where I'm making a mistake.

The state data of VST plugins is stored in the .MuProject file. If you copy a .MuProject file from one PC to another (eg via your iCloud account) then this VST data is copied too and the VSTs should load fine on the destination computer. Tip: Make sure you have the exact same VST plugin setup + versions on both computers.
