Returning to R19 after opening R22

I have a problem, if i need to work in R22 and then open another file in R19, after i close R22 and open R19 the settings and toolbars go to their default locations, all of the shorcuts (e.g. Hide/show accelerator) dissapear and i have to arrange them again.
Does anyone have this problem? If yes, have you found a solution?

I may be wrong, but I don't believe you can share CATSettings between different releases of CATIA.

It's not possible to share CATSettings between different releases of CATIA, but it's possible to use individual ones for different releases. Change the CATUserSettingPath variable value in the Environment Editor.
