  • Any way to globally change sesssion settings?

    My company is enforcing a folder structure now and my 50+ saved BC sessions' folders now have a new base name. Is there a way go globally change c:\code to c:\newfolder without manually editing each one?

    The settings backup file looks like it's binary.

    Hello Jim,

    Not within the GUI, but if you are comfortable editing XML files, yes.

    The exported settings file (bcpkg) is a renamed zip, which you could open and view the BCSessions.xml.

    Alternatively, you could backup and edit the settings directly. You can navigate straight to them using the Help menu -> Support dialog, and click the blue link to Explore Settings folder.

    BCSessions.xml is the .xml that contains your saved sessions, and I would recommend backing it up first (in case you accidentally violate syntax and need to try again), then perform a Find/Replace all on the text you need to replace.

    How does this work for you?

      Editing the files in the zip worked great! Thanks, that saved me a major headache.
