Exporting & Importing Settings

A local web page is not allowed to read files from the computer, so these progresses couldn't be made simple.
  • If you made a custom skin, put the whole folder in skin folder, then include the folder name in the skin list. You can access the list via the control panel.
    Folder name should be made of alphanumericals, hyphen and underscore. For now letter case matters.
  • If you want to keep settings for the application outside of it, you can copy them as a form of JSON text from the page. Paste such text to import settings.
