5661Version 3 Directories
- Feb 14, 2008Just a note about directories used by Version 3. Maybe everyone knows
this, but a lot of the messages lately don't seem to acknowledge it.
You can configure Version 3 to look for INI files and syntax files
anywhere you want. They don't have to be in \Documents and
Settings\<username>\Application Data\Edit Plus 3. The setup program
asks you where you want them to go, although I acknowledge that it
doesn't handle copying non-standard syntax files from Version 2.
One cool thing about the new arrangement is that you can have
different settings (INI files) for each user on a given computer.
Another is that you can point multiple team members to a common set of
syntax files in a shared directory while maintaining their own
settings. People have been asking for both of these for a long time.
It's unfortunate that there wasn't something written to explain the
changes to save people grief. Do you think that it's too late to put
something together for the wiki?
