Save properties

OCCURRENCE

<any properties menu>/Save properties

 

DESCRIPTION

Saves the userdefined setup (colours, fonts, ...) to property files. These files are located in the directory pointed to by the environmentvariable $ARB_PROP (which defaults to '~/.arb_prop' in your home directory). See also ´ARB environment variables´.

 

NOTES

To reset ARB to it's defaults simply remove one/all *.arb files from the directory '~/.arb_prop'

The files in ~/.arb_prop are textfiles. Advanced users may remove or change single sections or entries.

You can hand over your properties to another user by giving him your property-files.

Several windows provide a more fine-grained possibility to exchange settings with other users, using the Save/Load functions for configurations (see ´Property/settings configurations´).

 

GENERAL NOTES ABOUT PROPERTIES

Most settings you can change in ARB are saved either

  • to properties or
  • with your database.

Nevertheless some setting are not stored anywhere (some intentionally, some by mistake).

Please notify arb@arb-home.de if you think

  • a setting should be saved in properties (instead of always setting the same useless default value)
  • a setting should be saved in the database instead of properties (or vice versa)

 

EXAMPLES

None

 

WARNINGS

Better make backups of these files before you change them.

Be careful with ARB_MERGE: It uses the same properties as ARB_NT!
