Editor colors - upgrade = setup again :(


Hi,

Why is it that upgrading from build 655 to 670 means that I cannot take
my editor colors over even if I copy the colors director and .xml files?

Also, all my codestyle stuff is lost too. I'm really fed up of having to
set these up again every time I upgrade IDEA. Every time I try copying
the .xml files over to the correct location and it ignores them ? it's
getting -very- boring.

In build 670 I'm not even sure the colors go in the same place. Where are
the docs for these changes, if they are changes and not bugs?

Seems you have to copy your old config files to User_dir/IntelliJIdea30/config
instead of Ariadna_home/config

Or just correct bat file.

SET JVM_ARGS= %IDEA_JVM_ARGS% -Didea.config.path=~/.IntellijIdea30/config
