Hi,
I have saved my color settings in the IDE under Tools -> Options -> Display -> Colors. The color settings are saved in an xml file.

My question is, how do you import the colors (I have sent them to a second machine where I wish to use the same IDE colour palette)?

I have looked online and only found a reference by Sternas here, which mentions that it only takes 2 minutes to restore (unfortunately it takes longer to find the import/restore button...)

How it works


1)
ALL Tools -> Options -> Display -> Colors files are in
C:\Users\{User}\AppData\Roaming\typhon32\userschemes\ (for Typhon32)
and
C:\Users\{User}\AppData\Roaming\typhon64\userschemes\ (for Typhon64)

2)
Go to Tools -> Options -> Display -> Colors and save to above directory
for sample demo.xml.
Or
copy demo.xml to above directories







3)
Restart Typhon IDE go to Tools -> Options -> Display -> Colors and
select "Demo"

Thanks Matis,

Those instructions will work well for a Windows user, but I am using Linux (and my friends computer is a MAC, though I suspect they will share the same CT directory structure). Apologies, I neglected to mention my OS type. I did search yesterday for where the colour XML files were kept and tried storing the file in there, but when I looked at the available palettes my custom XML colour palette wasn't listed. I may well have had the wrong directory though.

Where should the colour palette XML files be stored (for Linux / MAC) in order to find them?

While I'm on the topic, is there a way to save the entire IDE configuration (not just the colours) for safe keeping?

The above CT fuctionality is the same to ALL CT Host OSes.

For CodeTyphon Directory Structure look here
You can open "User Settings Folder" from CTCenter

Hi,
that worked thanks. Once we located the correct folder as instructed (by looking for the path in Code Typhon Centre) we had to drill down one directory, to userschemes. when I copied the backed up xml colour scheme from my Linux computer, and pasted into the MAC computer at that location, it was correctly picked up as a colour option to select. Thanks again
