File related preferences

In addition to global setting, workspace settings and project settings there is also file related preferences.

File related preferences are that settings that are only connected to one specific file. Examples are:

  • File encoding - which is different from default determined (changed by user explicitly in File Open dialog or in Status Bar),
  • Line Break style, changed from default determined (in Status Bar)
  • Default Indent explicitly specified bu user in Status Bar
  • Visualization settings available in View→Editor (file specific)
  • Document Panes state (View→Panes→Navigation bar, Overview Bar etc)
  • File properties as Auto-Reload, Auto-Save, Read-Only in File menu

These settings are located in hefilepref.tmp file in %TEMP% folder, they are stored with absolute paths and so current PC relative.

File related preferences are NOT saved with explicit Portable switch.
