    Default To do list

    The first order of business is to write the design document.

    1. List ALL the Xara9 registry entries listed under the "options" branch and their purpose.
    Question: Does the Xara development team have such a list in their design document?
    2. Mark the various options as follows
    a. Changeable in the options menu in Xara9
    b. Safe to change in the Registry Editor
    c. Can be changed, but there could be consequences.

    I have placed the above into SourceForge as "Design Document".

    Grace,

    If Xara Dev Team as responded, you can ignore this.

    I have extracted all the registry entries for Web Designer Premium 9.0 into a spreadsheet with the following columns. I do not have the other versions of WBD installed, but I assume the registry entries would be a subset of these.


    KEY
    VALUE NAME
    VALUE TYPE
    SAMPLE VALUE

    Additional columns can be added for the information you want to log.

    I can upload here or elsewhere if you would like to use it as a starting point. Let me know.

    Also, unless provided by Xara Dev Team, determining the purpose for all the entries may be difficult. It might be easier to start with the ones already identified by XaReg or other posts on Talkgraphics.

    Regards,

    Steven

    Thanks, I was hoping to here from the Xara Dev team as PhilM had promised help. So, lets wait a couple of days.

    Hi Grace,

    No we don't have a separate list, I'm afraid. In this instance the source code is the list. We used to use tools to generate documentation from the code but we haven't run them for quite a while now.

    I went back to the old open source xaralx project which had a Doxygen document generated from the source but it does not seem to capture the "Preferences" (as they are called internally). It might be worth looking at that further, though, because the preferences it lists will still be 99% relevant.

    I'll check with the team and see what I can do.

    Phil

    Thanks, I think we should post it on SourceForge (http://sourceforge.net/p/xara9registryed/wiki/Home/). And also start on list of those already in XaReg and then we can collate them. I will start on the XaReg list.

    I added a column in the spreadsheet called XaReg Tab, to identify which tab, if any the registry entry is used on XaReg. I've identified most of the ones on the left hand side of the General tab so you may want to start with others.

    Haven't had time to go further with it and was offline yesterday will be most of today. Will try to post the xlsx file later.

    I like the idea of Google docs. I have created a new doc that lists the options currently available in XaReg. I would prefer that these documents are private, so anyone who would like to see them, please IM me with your email address.
    If you prefer, I can attach the spread sheet to a message here.

    I have created the design document and in it there is a list of keys that can be changed. What I would like is help fleshing out the description of these keys - we can use it as the help file. I have a tendency to be very terse when I am writing and that is not what I want for the key descriptions. Anyone who is willing to help should first of all join SourceForge, then let me know and I will give them a link to the document,
    Thanks
