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:
The folder ‘\%temp\%_EmEd_Backups’ does not exist.
Create a new folder?
Cannot create a folder.
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?

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.

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 .

Yes, sorry, i have just clicked the wrong forum by accident.
Please move it if you want.
