This application note explains how to save waveform preferences such as colors and fonts to the macro file. It also covers saving perspectives layout and applying it in different versions of Riviera-PRO.
You may save waveform preferences such as colors and fonts to a “.do” macro file.
To save waveform preferences run the commands below in Riviera-PRO console:
> pref.serialize application/colors/waveform -file waveform_colors.do > pref.serialize application/fonts/waveform -file waveform_fonts.do
To apply saved preferences execute the .do macro files in Riviera-PRO console:
> do waveform_colors.do > do waveform_fonts.do
In general, you may save more tool settings to a macro file by running:
> pref.serialize application -file preferences.do
Perspectives layout and other settings are stored in the following directory:
<Documents and Settings>\<User's folder>\Application Data\Aldec\Riviera-PRO\<version number>\config\framework
As you can see Riviera-PRO GUI settings are stored in the version number specific directories. You can copy config/framework directory from one <version number> to another to apply the settings.
