you have an Update of Suarez that seems to be good for us all 😉
If I want to use the Envato-Kit updater (within WordPress) it says that all customizing ist overwritten.
I saved all customizing via export.
Can I do the update via Envato-Kit and then import the customization. Is this the right way?
What would you do…?

The first: please backup your site before update to avoid risk. (You can use duplicator plugin).
1. Uplodate theme
There are 2 methods to update our WordPress themes to a newer version. These new updates are essential if you want to have a bug free website, as we add new features and make improvements to the theme over time. Some of these updates might be needed in order to make the theme compatible with newer versions of WordPress. There is no risk of losing your settings and pages. However, if you had made modifications to theme files, they will be lost.
1.1 Update Suarez Through WordPress Admin Panel:
For this method you should first install the Theme Upgrades Tool.
Unzip the file you just downloaded from ThemeForest and locate the WordPress Theme. (wp-suarez.zip).
Login to your WordPress Dashboard.
Click on “Appearance > Themes”.
Click on Add New button on this page
Click on Upload Theme Button
Click “Choose File” and locate the new theme file. (wp-suarez.zip).
In the “Upgrade existing theme?” option choose “Yes” from the dropdown list.
Click “Install Now”.
1.2 Update Suarez Through FTP
Login to your Themeforest account and go to downloads (Dashboard > Downloads).
Download the theme to your computer.
Install an FTP program (for example, Filezilla is free).
Retrieve your FTP login information from your hosting admin panel and login into your hosting via FTP.
Unzip the item main file.
Locate theme.zip (wp-suarez.zip) and unzip it. Make sure your unzipping software does not create an extra directory with the same name, nested into each other.
Drag and drop theme main folder into your FTP program with the destination: “YOUR_HOSTING_ROOT/YOUR_SUBDIRECTORY/wp-content/themes/”.
The FTP program will give a warning that there is an existing directory with the same name, choose to Replace All.
It will take between 15 to 30 minutes to replace all files. Once you are done, login to your WordPress dashboard and go to Theme Options. On the header (beside Theme Options logo) the theme version will be changed to the latest version. This is the indication that your theme is updated. We recommend method one which takes less than one minute.
1. Uplodate necessary plugins
When the time comes that you want to update our themes to the latest versions you may need to update necessary plugins of theme. To update the plugin you will need to follow the steps below:
1 Deactivate plugins
2 Delete plugins
3 On the Dashboard, go to Appearance->Install plugins to reinstall plugins.
