Split settings into a user and a desktop-related part

#1 Post by KD » 24.02.2009, 14:34

All settings are now stored in a single .ini file. Would it be possible to split this into 2 files, so one file stores the desktop-related settings and the other stores the user-related settings? When using FreeCommander on multiple computers, this would allow:
- to either use a standalone (unzipped instead of installed) version of freecommander on a usb-device that reads the user-related settings from an .ini file on the usb-device and the computer-related settings from an .ini file on the computer.
- to either use an installed version of freecommander on each computer and to synchronise the user-related .ini between the different computers, for example by means of a synchronised .ini on a usb-device.

In both cases it would no longer be necessary to make the same user-related settings on different computers.

computer-related settings are broadly the settings related to the directory tree, the screen size etc, for example: favorites, tabs, layouts, ...
user-related settings are broadly the settings related to the look and feel of freecommander: multiple rename profiles, file filters, compare and synchronise settings, FTP-settings, folder-tab settings, color settings, ...

Thanks in advance

To Wrekik: what does "+1" mean?

To FreeCommander: I notice FTP-settings are already in a seperate file (FreeCommander.ftp) instead of the general .ini-file. A good example of what I mean ... Maybe seperate files for multiple rename profiles, file filters, compare and synchronise settings, folder-tab settings, color settings, ... are possible?

"Plus one" means that there is another user supporting your suggestion
