    Hi All,

    Where does the Snippets Plug-in store its database/files? I know there is an option for export/import, but anyway…

    Thank you!

    Hello,

    The snippets are usually saved in :

    C:Users(username)AppDataRoamingEmurasoftEmEditor

    as the file name Snippets.bin.

    Thanks!

    Is there a way to re-define its default location?

    No. However, if you use EmEditor as the portable, the Snippets.bin file will be saved in the PlugIns folder.

    Thanks!

    As for the EmEditor performances, are they the same in the regular and portable versions?
    What are the cons & pros for the portable version?
    Thank you

    EmEditor frequently uses the Registry to save and load settings (in order to reduce used memory size) when installed. However, when it is used as portable settings, it uses .INI files, and INI files are very slow compared to the Registry. For this reason, I advise using the Installer whenever possible. However, in most cases, both speed are about the same. The differences are significant when you change settings or when you first launch EmEditor.

    Also, some features like Update Checker, File Extension Association with EmEditor, Explorer context menu, Windows 8/7 Taskbar context menu, etc., are only available from installed EmEditor.

    Thanks!

    Also, the installer version requires administrator rights for installation, whereas portable version does not.

    I have to run the portable version at work since I don’t have admin rights on that machine. It would be nice to have an installer version that would use the registry HKCU instead of HKLM. I have other programs that install fine and add shell extensions without needing admin rights.
