C::B loses editor setting when it crashes
« on: January 30, 2014, 02:47:25 pm »
Hi,

After my C::B (12.11) crashes, What I set in editor (like color, font, and so on) will be lost.

All settings you change will only be saved when C::B gets closed.

I have saved my setting, but once it crashes, my setting is reset to default.

e.g. I changed font in General settings, something in Syntax highlighting.

That's meant exactly as I wrote it.

The settings are only changed in memory until C::B will be closed (cleanly). In this case they will be written to disk.
That's the cause why they are lost, if C::B crashes after a change, but before it gets closed.

When I opened the project again, I should get previous settings I saved before last exit. Question is I went back to default for a new installation.

...or if you choose "Save everything" from the "File" menu. This also triggers saving the settings, btw...
