on Mac OS hides the directories in which applications store user configurations as Windows Explorer does by default on Windows most likely for preventing users to unintentionally delete configuration files of used applications.
I copied the instructions from this post
on how to find the application data directory using Finder
- Open Finder.
- Hold the option key and select Go at the top of the screen. This step is very important.
- Choose Library (this will not show unless you are holding the option key).
- Choose Application Support.
- You should see an UltraEdit folder, open it.
- You should see the subfolder wordfiles.
On Windows the application data directory has by default the hidden attribute set .For that reason on running a find with Windows Explorer with default settings this directory with all its subdirectories is not found because Windows Explorer by default ignores hidden directories and files on search. The solution is copying the file path as displayed in Syntax Highlighting
configuration dialog to clipboard, pasting it into the address bar of Windows Explorer and hitting key RETURN to open the folder in Windows Explorer. Another possibility on Windows is copying %APPDATA%\IDMComp\UltraEdit\wordfiles
to clipboard and pasting it into address bar, or entering directly this path with the environment variable reference in the address bar, and hitting key RETURN to open the folder. The application data folder in folder path has by default the hidden attribute set for not displaying this folder and all its subfolders by default.
I don't have a Mac. But I assume on Mac the same methods work. So instead of searching for the folder, the folder path must be directly entered either by copying and pasting the path as shown in Syntax Highlighting
preferences dialog, or by entering ~/Library/Application Support/UltraEdit/wordfiles
