Where my HippoEDIT configuration stored?
« on: January 02, 2009, 12:54:08 pm »
HippoEDIT sotres configuration in different files. All paths are default and relative to HippoEDIT user directory. Location of the HippoEDIT user data directory depends on installation type you have selected: for portable it equals installation directory, for Current user should be in %AppData%\HippoEDIT for current user, for all users should be in All Users\Application Data\HippoEDIT:
  • Hippoedit.config - stores global IDE settings
  • workspaces\default.hewsp - Default workspace. Window positions and states, open files, recent files, input history etc for HE started standalone
  • workspaces\viewer.hewsp - Viewer workspace. Same as default.hewsp but for cases when HE started by double click from explorer (if --workspace=viewer passed in command line)
  • data\settings.xml - editor settings
  • data\syntax\..._spec.xml + ..._user.xml  - specification and user files for separated syntaxes
  • data\keymaps\keymap_default.xml - default keyboard layout

Usually if you are asked to send configuration files, you need to send:
Hippoedit.config, workspaces\default.hewsp and data\settings.xml. Sometimes, if problem occurs in context of some specific syntax, it is better to to send also data\syntax\%you_syntax%_spec.xml + %you_syntax%_user.xml.

It is not possible to copy license.dat from one PC to another one. You need to re-register (enter your license key) in second machine too.
The only way to avoid this, if you initially install HE on flash (remote) drive. In this case license.dat would be bound to it.

My question is if there is a complete (and up-to-date) guide to what is possible to tweak in Settings.xml?
