The Preference Recorder only seems to detect preferences changed inside the main Preferences dialog. However, our plugins are also changing some preferences from view toolbars and menus, and it would be very helpful to be able to record and share those user specific preferences between workspaces.

Are there any Oomph or Eclipse calls we can make when our plugins are saving the preferences, so that the Preference Recorder will record those changes?

Yes, the preference recorder only listens to changes starting when the preferences dialog is opened, and finishing when it's closed. But you can always using Navigate -> Open Setup -> User and then the use Capture Preferences toolbar button to capture selectively any preference in whatever state it currently has.

Thanks, that makes sense. It looks like 'Capture Preferences' would work well for manually capturing preferences (which may or may not be all we need).

In case certain preferences would need to be "recorded" in real time then I'm assuming our plugin would be able to update the appropriate setup (for example: user.setup) similar to how 'Capture Preferences' is doing it.
