Object Browser - Way to save preferences/window settings?

I am creating a presentation on using JDE Object Browser for our developers and BSAs. When I use Object Browser, I always set the 'Object Search' tab to be alongside the UDC Browser tab, and also on 'Auto-Hide.' This is just a better use of the screen, in my opinion. However, if I want to standardize this across our virtual clients, is there a settings file or preferences file I can propagate in order to have everyone's instance look the same? Looking in C:/Program Files/PatWel Group Inc/JDE Object Browser, I don't see any such file (but my Windows app programming leaves quite a bit to be desired). Obviously this isn't a make or break thing, but it would be handy.

Hey Nick,

The software uses MFC (Microsoft Foundation Classes) as the basis for the UI. Most of the panel size/position nitty gritty is taken care of by that framework. The settings are stored in the registry beneath: \HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\PatWel Group Inc\ObjectBrowser\Workspace

I suppose you could extract your settings from an "optimal" install and import those to others. Sorry but it's nothing easily supported in the tool right now.

regards,
Craig
