    Image based summary:
    Export settings as a macro command

    Some background
    I would like to add EmEditor’s settings to my regular backup flow, which is scripted.
    The script calls an EmEditor .jsee macro, which in turn should do the same as “Tools” → “Import and Export” → “Export all settings into a registry file” / “into INI files”

    Essentially something analogous to the filters export method:
    editor.Export( "d:\\backup\\settings.reg" );

    It seems that such a command doesn’t exist, but before I make a feature request I’ll first ask if someone has an idea.

    Yes please! I too would like this feature.
    I’m currently using a .bat file which I’ve added to the External Tools menu (so I can hotkey it) for quick backups.

    @echo off
    set settings=C:\Settings\EmEditor\Registry_Export
    reg export "HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\EmSoft" "%settings%\EmEditor_Settings_CurrentUser.reg" /y
    reg export "HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE\SOFTWARE\EmSoft" "%settings%\EmEditor_Settings_LocalMachine.reg" /y
