    Upgrade pain in settings beyond preferences

    LaszloGal-Oracle

      Every time I upgrade from one release to another the new version kindly asks me if I want to import preferences from a previous version, that I usually chose, however while it imports the preferences and many local settings, some settings are not brought over from the previous version.

       

      Lately I've upgraded from 4.0.0.13.80 to 4.0.2.15.21 and experienced

      • SQL history nicely comes through
      • User defined reports nicely come through

      but

      • SVN repository connection definitions don't so I have to manually re-create the repository definitions
      • Opened files layout is lost, if I upgrade in the middle of some work where I prefer to keep some files opened, I lose that setting.
      • Table data filter history

       

      These are not real show stoppers but I wonder if there is any special way to upgrade while preserving all my personalization that makes my work more efficient without re-setting them after every upgrade.
