    Hi.

    I used to save 3 files to keep safe my UltraEdit configuration.
    I know about the feature "Backup/Restore user customizations", but I prefer to save and edit just that 3 files, as known:
    uedit64u.ini
    uedit64u.in0
    uedit64u.rb0
    ...that I grab from %APPDATA%\IDMComp\UltraEdit\

    I was surprised when I saw that the new version 28.20.0 has just only one INI file:
    ue.ini.

    Because I deleted all user settings when I uninstalled the previous version (I trusted the saved files saved before), now I don't know how to restore my configuration.

    Any help?

      Delete (or rename) the directory %APPDATA%\IDMComp\UltraEdit, create the directory UltraEdit new and copy the three uedit64u.* files into it. Then start UltraEdit which adds the other configuration files and converts the three existing uedit64u* files to ue.ini, volatile\ue.in0 (workspace settings), volatile\ue.rb0 (ribbon, menu and toolbar settings) and volatile\ue.vod.

      uedit64u.ini is split up now into two files, ue.ini with not often changed configuration settings which can be shared via the built-in cloud feature and volatile\ue.vod which stores the volatile user data (histories).

        Thank you, Mofi.
        It worked very well.
        Good decision to split user data from its configuration.

        Problem solved.
