Talk:User.properties

Macintosh key binding

user.properties is located in the freemind folder in your Home directory. To get the normal Mac Command-key combos to work open this file in TextEdit and do a find/replace with " control " as the the thing to find and " meta " as the replacement (the spaces before and after are important). A version of user.properties with these changes done can be found at my FreeMind Wiki homepage.--AlainODea 18:31, 30 Sep 2004 (PDT)

Bug: Windows application paths

The recommended path for a Windows application to store its settings in Windows XP is %USERPROFILE%\Application Data, and in Windows Vista %USERPROFILE%\AppData\Roaming. The reason for this is the same as why it's on Unix recommended to save in $HOME/.<application> and not $HOME/<application>. Most user don't want to see a new folder in their home (aka My documents) folder for every application they have on their computer. In Windows the Application Data och AppData folder is hidden.

So the recommended path for freemind to save its settings under Windows XP would be:

C:\Documents and Settings\(your user name)\Application Data\freemind\user.properties

I should probably report this as a bug. --John Ericson 06:27, 27 Jul 2007 (PDT)
