Title: 25.0.2 vsdiff doesn't use my color scheme
Post by: jnairb on June 07, 2021, 05:00:50 pm
After installing SlickEdit 25.0.2, running a standalone vsdiff no longer uses my color scheme. It also doesn't seem to use any of my default diff options. Starting a diff from within SlickEdit seems normal.

How do I get the standalone diff to use my config?

Do you normally specify your config when you launch SlickEdit?  Do you put it somewhere other than the default?

What platform are you on?

I'm on Windows 10 x64. My config is under C:\Users\BrianJongekryg\SlickEdit. I have the SLICKEDITCONFIG environment variable set to that directory. I don't specify the config directory when I start SlickEdit and it finds it OK.

OK.  What happens if you run "vsdiff -sc C:\Users\BrianJongekryg\SlickEdit <file1> <file2>"?

When I add -sc C:\Users\BriangJongekryg\SlickEdit, vsdiff comes up with my normal color scheme and options.

I have to figure out why we don't pick up VSLICKCONFIG in this case.

In the meantime, the easiest workaround would be to copy C:\Users\BrianJongekryg\SlickEdit\25.0.2\user.cfg.xml to "C:\Users\BrianJongekryg\Documents\My SlickEdit Config\25.0.2".

That does work as a temp workaround. I don't think that default config directory (My SlickEdit Config) even existed prior to this 25.0.2 update (or if it did, it was empty). It only contains a config directory for 25.0.2 now.

If you've always had a SLICKEDITCONFIG variable set since you installed on that machine you wouldn't have anything there. Running vsdiff probably copied the default configuration and put it there.
