Environment configuration
Overview
An environment configuration corresponds to a backup of the work environment in the editors of WINDEV, WEBDEV and WINDEV Mobile: the different panes, palettes and toolbars are saved (as well as their position). This configuration can be restored at any time. Up to 4 configurations can be stored per user/developer.
Tip: The environment configurations soon become indispensable when using several screens. The elements found in the interface of WINDEV, WEBDEV and WINDEV Mobile can be positioned on any screen. The position of each element on the different screens is automatically saved and restored.
Versions 16 and later
