I'm about to upgrade App Studio to a new minor version, but the installer always overwrites my settings for text editor colours and resets the font to that "abomination" called 'Courier New' (Like I'm writing code on an old-fashioned typewriter - it has no place in this millenium).
I obviously do not want to lose those settings! Does anyone know where they are stored?This message has been edited. Last edited by: FP Mod Chuck,

During the few years I used to use AppStudio, I'd always just change them back after every update. I have since seen the light and use VS Code instead of "abominations"... ...in conjunction with this extension.
Probably the same spot they store old environment settings that magically appear configured after totally uninstalling every known trace of the application from your hard drive and then reinstalling it again, even gutting registry keys...This message has been edited. Last edited by: CoolGuy,

There are several xml files with user's preferences. I remember that in the WF6 (or WF7) world I already have backup one (or all) of these files before an upgrade and then restore to have my default restored. Maybe one of those is the one that you are looking for...

It would make sense that some of these are under the HKCU are since each user might choose different fonts.
Under plain HKLM\Software, I see the appstudio information but it's for 82x. I suspect - the way that works is that the settings are copied into the HKCU area when a person first loads up AppStudio and then any customizations are stored under HKCU.
