Options

The option file is $HOME/.scidvspc/config/options.dat (and a few other files in the same directory).

On Windows the options directory is (unfortunately) in the program installation directory, bin/config.

Options are saved automatically at program exit, or when Options-> Save Options is selected.

The Docked Windows layout is not saved automatically, but may be done manually using Options-> Save Layout.

Colours

The colours and themes for the Main Board are set in the Options-> Chessboard, but a few other colour settings are available in Options-> Colours.

The Rows colour is for the highlighted row in the Tree, Books, Finder, PlayerFinder and TournamentFinder windows. Crosstable coloured rows must be enabled in the Crosstable Options menus. The Board arrows and drawables' colours are set in the Comment Editor.
