Importing/Exporting/Resetting Global Options

Actions for importing, exporting, and resetting global options are available in the Options menu. The export operation allows you to save global preferences as an XML properties file and the import operation allows you to load the property file. You can use this file to reload saved options on your computer or to share with others.

The following actions are available in the Options menu:
Reset Global Options
Restores the preference to the factory defaults or to customized defaults. This action also resets the transformation and validation scenarios to the default scenarios and clears recently used document templates.
Import Global Options
Allows you to import a set of Global Options from an exported XML properties file. You can also select a project-level options file (.xpr) to import all the Global Options that are set in that project file. After you select a file, the Import Global Options dialog box is displayed, and it informs you that the operation will only override the options that are included in the imported file. You can select the Reset all other options to their default values option to reset all options to the default values before the file is imported.
Export Global Options
Allows you to export Global Options to an XML properties file. Some user-specific options that are private are not included. For example, passwords and the name of the Review Author is not included in the export operation.

Oxygen XML Editor automatically stores your global options in an XML properties file. Depending on the platform you are using, this file is located in the following directories:

  • [user-home-folder]\AppData\Roaming\com.oxygenxml for Windows
  • [user-home-folder]/Library/Preferences/com.oxygenxml for OS X
  • [user-home-folder]/.com.oxygenxml for Linux

The name of the options file of Oxygen XML Editor 23.1 is oxyOptionsSa23.1.xml.
