Colour Preferences [message #895682] Sat, 14 July 2012 21:23 Go to next message

Is there a way to export (then import) just the Java editor colour
preferences?

I have tried to edit the preferences export file, but the import states
that I cannot import partial settings.

Settings like:
/instance/org.eclipse.jdt.ui/semanticHighlighting.abstractMethodInvocation.bold=true


If there is no way to export/import, then what settings (in the
preferences file) do I need to make the importer import the colours?

Wojtek,

No, I don't think so, but you could copy your exported preference file
and delete all the but the color settings from it so you end up with a
preference file for just the colors.

Yes I tried doing that. I did a search for "semanticHighlighting" and
saved those. But the importer still complained about incomplete
settings.

So I either missed one or more, there are some which use a different
key, or there is some special flag which is required.

I really don't want to import the entire preferences as there are
skeletons from previous version and plugins I would like to go away.

Maybe kind of trivial, but I spent a lot of time tweaking the colours,
and my brain "sees" different syntax as required.

Have you tried in a clean workspace to change a single setting to see
how exporting that looks?

Now that's interesting. The only colour information is the one change I
made. However there are a lot of keys such as:

@org.eclipse.mylyn.monitor.ui=3.8.0.v20120612-0600

Plus the settings are all mixed up. It is almost like Eclipse fires off
a bunch of threads, probably one for every major preference type, then
writes out the settings as each one arrives from a thread.

There is also a header with a datetime stamp.

.....

Well I tried various combinations of keys, single keys, all the keys,
and the colours will not import.

There must be a setting I am missing which validates the rest of the
settings for syntax colours.

Here is the entire file I am trying to use as an import. I added the
file version at the end, but it still does not import.

Your file can be imported. It works for me Smile
(confirmed on eclipse for some of syntax coloring settings and matched against re-exported preferences)(with new installation)
I wouldn't say you did nothing.

I must have missed some settings in the "clean" file. You are right it
does import, but the changes I was looking for did not appear.

Thanks
