Customized Settings and Configurations

You can customize many aspects of Source Insight, such as the color of the screen and the assignments of keystrokes to commands. This collection of options is stored in a configuration file.

Layouts are another type of settings file you can save and load. Layouts contain window arrangements. See: Saving Window Arrangements with Layouts.

The current configuration is loaded and saved automatically, but you can save and load configuration files directly using the Options > Save Configuration and Options > Load Configuration commands. You can also save or load individual parts, such as just key assignments.

By default, all your customizations are saved in a file called config_all.xml, stored in the Source Insight user data directory. This is a global configuration file that applies no matter what project is open.
