    .

    The edit box “Backup Folder:”
    of “Config > Backup”
    will show me all items of \%tmp\%
    as an drop-down display
    but then again he tell me:

    —————————
    EmEditor
    —————————
    The folder ‘\%temp\%_EmEd_Backups’ does not exist.
    Create a new folder?
    —————————
    Ja Nein
    —————————

    and then

    —————————
    EmEditor
    —————————
    Cannot create a folder.
    —————————
    OK
    —————————

    Even the folder already exists.

    Browsing for the full path works of course.

    So i guess EmEditor doesn’t really allow
    env vars as path in that control?

    It seems to me just your code to check the path
    is not prepared to expand the \%VAR\% ?

    If that is true… could that be improved please?

    Hello Stefan,

    Environment variables are not supported for the Backup folder. If this is something you desire, I will add this feature in future versions. By the way, this is not a plug-in feature, but rather an EmEditor core feature.

    Thanks!

    Well, since i use EmEditor portable
    i just want to make this path portable too,
    and pointing it e.g. to user profile folder
    (You know: no matter if user is stefan or admin)
    Or to a other partition which is defined by
    an own created env var \%Backups\%.

    But at least we can use relative paths here:
    [ .Backups ]

    So i can life with that but to make EmEditor even more portable
    i want to suggest to respect this fact on all places.
    So,… if you find some time to implement this it would be appreciated .
