Get all settings on the new computer
« on: January 29, 2020, 08:46:46 am »
Hi, I am just now upgrading to a new computer and certainly want to take my rather old version 16 slick with me.
I installed it on my new machine and then copied the program folder from the old computer over the freshly installed version on the new one.
Then I copied the whole folder "My SlickEdit Config" from my Document folder over the new one.
All this in the hope that I would get all settings and modification that I had made over the years over to the new machine.
It mostly worked, but one minor thing is off: when I open a text file, the font is not right - not the monospace font but a proportional.
So, my question: is there another place where slick might store setup info?
Cheers,
Merlin

There's no other place.  Are you switching operating systems - what is the operating system?

In tools -> options -> appearance -> fonts - are the font settings what you expect?  If not, can you not just set them to what you want?  Are you sure the font you want is installed on the new machine?  Is it available in e.g. Notepad ?
