A Quaestor profile is saved in 2 files with the same name:

  • one in the Options folder; it contains all the options that are present in the Tools --> Options dialog
  • one in the Windows folder; it contains the options for the GUI (which frames & toolbars are displayed and where are they positioned)


    The 2 files must have exactly the same file name in order to be recognized as a profile!

    When adding them to the knowledge base it is not necessary that they have the same name.

Additionally, some settings can be imposed to the user. The imposed settings cannot be overwritten by the user.
