Exporting preferences

Use the Export wizard to export preferences from the IDE Workbench to the local filesystem. Exporting an existing preference file lets you easily share preferences with other individuals or a group.

To export a preference file:

  1. Select File > Export.
  2. In the Export wizard, select General > Preferences, then click Next.
  3. Select one of the following:
    Option Description
    Export all To add all of the preferences to the file.
    Choose specific preferences To export only the specified preferences to the file.
  4. Click Browse and locate the preferences file on the local filesystem.
  5. Click Finish.
Note: If there were no changes to the original preference settings in the IDE, the exported preferences file will be empty.
