I was wondering if there was a way that I could share the same BBEdit configuration (Preferences, Application Scripts, other scripts, colour schemes, etc) across two Macs?

Would just having BBEdit's Application Support folder live in iCloud suffice?

It's not possible to share preferences settings (those are managed by the OS), but chapter 2 of the user manual (on the Help menu) has instructions for sharing configuration (the application support folder, and its contents) using Dropbox or iCloud Drive.

(We don't recommend that you use iCloud Drive; it has proven somewhat troublesome. But we can't stop you from trying.)

Someday I'll look back on all this and laugh... until they sedate me.
