e textEditor: Exporting Themes

If you like e textEditor and are looking for a way to edit your theme like me, you might be somewhat frustrated with the available documentation. The default theme files are stored inside of “C:\Program Files (x86)\e\Themes\” (nix the x86 for xp or vista/7 32 bit).

However, after you edit a theme you’ll find that those file are exactly the same – there have been no updates or changes! So how does E-textEditor know about / save your changes?

Answer: A local preference file is stored in your Application Data folder. This is also a .tmTheme file, and should be located in the following directories:


C:\Documents and Settings\username\Application Data\e\Themes

You can also remove the files stored in this directory to reset your themes back to the default. Try checking out Blackboard.tmTheme for a nice try at a darker theme.
