4.2i Foundation - Project preference changes are carried over to other projects

Description

Keywords: Foundation, F1.4, Preference, changes, susie.ini

Urgency: Standard

General Description:
In Schematic Capture, I change the settings by selecting View --> Preferences for the current project. However, these changes are carried over to other project as well. (These changes are not specific to projects, but rather are system-wide changes.)

Solution

Foundation system settings are stored in a configuration file called "ALDEC.INI". This file is stored in the Windows directory. If you wish to have different system settings for different projects, back up this file and copy the appropriate settings to ALDEC.INI when you are ready to use them.

To make this process easier, store the backup file for each project in the project directory so that you easily know which file is which. You can then simply copy the file into Windows when you are ready to use it.
