FreeCAD exports all settings

Postby 111 » Sat Jul 06, 2019 2:46 pm

FreeCAD exports all settings
All the settings of FreeCAD, all in the FreeCAD folder.

C:\Users\a←When installing the operating system, the name entered.\AppData←File Manager ~ “Hidden project” to open, the AppData folder will be displayed.\Roaming\FreeCAD

Back up the FreeCAD folder, when reinstalling, put the FreeCAD folder in its original place.

Note: To clear all settings, just delete the FreeCAD folder, then open the program, a new FreeCAD folder will be created.





FreeCAD exports toolbars and macros I made
Common path
C:\Users\a←When installing the operating system, the name entered.\AppData←File Manager ~ “Hidden project” to open, the AppData folder will be displayed.\Roaming\FreeCAD\Please take the branch path below.

Branch path
\FreeCAD\user.cfg←The “toolbar” I made is placed here.

\FreeCAD\Macro←The “Macro” I made is placed here.

Back up the file and folder, when reinstalling, put the file and folder in its original place.





Record settings with screenshots
In the event that there is no way to export the settings, Record settings with a screenshot, It is the best way.

For example: Desktop location, toolbar location, and more...

Record settings with a screenshot, When reinstalling, It will be restored soon.

The same is true for mobile phones.

Hi and welcome to the forum!

You are posting this in announcments. Do you want to provide a backup macro or workbench?

Hi and welcome :)

I did some work with FreeCAD Preferences once. https://forum.freecadweb.org/viewtopic.php?f=22&t=30795
I found it useful when working on different types of projects to have multiple shortcuts that load FreeCAD with the appropriate preferences.


When you think about creating a macro or workbench, maybe our usecases can benefit from each other.

All.

Please put the article "fixed" at the top, this way everyone can see it.

If it is possible, please translate into other languages.

When you want to mark a topic as solved or fixed, you can edit your first post and add it to the Subject.

But as this was not a help request, I don't see exactly what problem your post tries to solve. Maybe you can describe what Problem you had a bit more so others can easily see if they have the same problem and if your solution applies to it.

Your solution seems to only work for windows. Providing your FreeCAD Version would also help others too :)

That is the version translated into "Traditional Chinese".

Not everyone understands English.

I still don't really understand what you are doing and I'm not yet sure whether this is a useful addon for FreeCAD or whether this is spam. Can you please provide a link to your software?

If I understand correctly the first post, the OP is trying to stick a howto to save / restore a full FC setting configuration among PCs.
