I have NCP on  a couple of laptops, one is a regular installation, the other is a portable one. I'd like to keep settings in sync between them. Are there particular files common to both versions that control the various settings like keyboard shortcuts etc and which I could copy back and forth between them?

All settings are stored in your notecase_pro.ini file. See Help file >
Installing and Upgrading > NoteCase Pro File Locations > .notecase
Directory for its location on your system.

A caution that not all settings are portable. For example, your type
size settings should vary if you have both a laptop and a desktop
machine with a large monitor.

Sections in the .ini file are arranged alphabetically. You can edit
the .ini file with a text editor that supports UTF-8 without Byte
Order Marking (BOM). Geany is an outstanding programmer's text editor
that supports UTF-8 without BOM out of the box and is supported on all
the desktop platforms NC Pro supports. There is a Geany plugin that
adds Lua support, including methods for constructing wizards. A Geany
Lua script that selectively replaces non-portable entries should not
be difficult.

NoteCase Pro overwrites a new notecase_pro.ini every time the program
shuts down. For that reason, exit NC Pro before editing your .ini
file.

Best regards,

Paul

Thanks Paul. I'll just move the ini file back and forth then - nice and simple.
