Compatibility of config across architectures
« on: June 01, 2024, 11:33:09 AM »
I need to develop in parallel on Windows and Linux and was looking for an editor with similar user experience on both architectures. And no, 'vim' is not an option  ;)
Slickedit seems to look good but in the forum I have found 'do not use the config on another architecture' which make it hard to keep configurations in sync.
Therefore I would like to see a 'cross-platform' configuration. In the best case the config would be on a share (e.g. DropBox) and automatically synchronized.

I'm not certain but you'll probably find that exporting and importing your options between Windows and Linux works fairly well.  The help file says it's allowed but not supported.  I think if something goes wrong it should be fairly obvious.  To keep them in synch you might find that using the options history in the options dialog is just as good as export import.
