Where are the IDE settings?

I would like to export the IDE settings and reimport them elsewhere. Settings like colors and code style. Where are the IDE settings?

All IDE level settings are stored as various xml files under config
directory.

Thanks for the hint. I found them. I work with build 1035 and I saved the modified color settings under the name "Colorful" and found the config file

$HOME/.IntelliJIdea/config/colors/colorful.xml

($HOME is the user home directory).

Cheers*

IDEA asks you during installation where to keep the config files - "user home" or "installation directory"

Yes, obviously I selected user home directory. I found the config directory by a search in the file system. Thanks a lot for helping me.
