    Hi!

    Is it possible to have File-Backups depending on Projects?
    E.g I have Project “Fubar” with files like r:projectsFubarsrcfoo.lua and I would like to have my Backup-Files for that in r:projectsFubarbakfoo.lua.bak

    On an other project “Kerfuffle” I’ll have a layout r:projectskerfufflesrcblabber.lua and with expected backup-files in r:projectskerfufflebakblabber.lua.bak

    I found only a “Backup” in the Configuration-Dialog, but that seems to be for all Files concertning that Type, oder is it possible to have some Wildcards in the “Backup Folder”, didnt found that.

    Sure I could use my svn and check my files always in, but at my point of view that is not necessary.

    cheers

    Hello Matthias,

    Thank you for using EmEditor!

    I might consider more sophisticated backup settings in future versions. Thank you!

    Hi!

    Thanks for your fast reply, would be great to see something like that in a future release.

    Another question, would it be possible to “selfmodify” the configuration?
    I mean, if I remember right, sorry still a newbie with emeditor, I save my macros with my project, or my “solution”, still not quite familiar with that dependencies and naming.
    So I could write a macro which sets a new BackupDirectory for every “project” I have and fire it up if I load that project, modify my settings and would have a little bit tricky workaround.

    Fiction or would that be a possible way, hehehe didnt say that would simple 😉 ?

    cheers

    You can write a macro to change backup settings.

    This is just an example how you write that macro:

    cfg = document.Config;
    cfg.Backup.SaveToFolder = true;
    cfg.Backup.Folder = "C:BackupFolder";
    cfg.Save();

    Please let me know if you have further questions.
    Thanks!
