Where are my preferences stored?

You can save a copy of your Eclipse preferences.

Symptom

I would like to export my Eclipse preferences before performing a IXIASOFT CCMS upgrade or switching to a new computer.

Problem

I cannot locate where my preferences are stored.

Solution

The preferences are stored in various locations depending on the plugin:
Preference Location
Perspective layout \workspace\.metadata\.plugins\org.eclipse.e4.workbench\workbench.xmi
The default export folder \workspace\.metadata\.plugins\org.eclipse.core.runtime\‚Äč.settings\com.ixiasoft.eclipse.dita.prefs
Oxygen license key %APPDATA%\com.oxygenxml.author\license.xml. For example, C:\Users\janedoe\AppData\Roaming\com.oxygenxml.author
Oxygen preferences such as tags view, Show profiling attributes, and track changes always on.
  1. Click Window > Preferences > oXygen XML Author.
  2. Click Export Global Options.
