Editor options location

Post by rocketbob » Wed May 28, 2014 6:58 pm

I suppose the editor options are saved to a file somewhere, but I haven't found it. Could someone please tell me where they're saved? I would like to use the editor options I set up on one installation of SF on another virtual machine.

Thanks,
Bob

Bob -

They're in the registry under HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\MecaniqueUK\SwordfishIDE

A user over on the Firewing forum made a utility to export/import IDE settings. You might want to check it out.

I haven't tried it yet, so let us know if it works out ok or not.

Hmm... that utility doesn't save the registry keys, just some values, so it might be a bit dangerous.

Probably easier to just export the registry sections to a text file... open a command prompt and type

Code: Select all

C:\WINDOWS>regedit /e c:\sf_ide.reg  HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\MecaniqueUK\SwordfishIDE
That'll put all the entries into a file named c:\sf_ide.reg, which you can edit/import as required
