#50 Exporting the GNU ARM Eclipse Template preferences

Time Permitting

Plugin: Version 2.2.2-201404240550
Eclipse Kepler
Windows 7 64bit
GNU ARM Embedded (launchpad)

I create a workspace configured for GNU ARM Eclipse plugins. To export a workspace setting I use the menu File > Expert > Preferences.
The issue is that the settings in
Preferences > C/C++ > Template Default Values
for the GNU ARM Eclipse plugins are not exported into the Eclipse preferences file? Therefore I cannot copy the GNU ARM Eclipse preferences/settings to a new workspace.

Wish: It should be possible to expert the GNU ARM Eclipse settings with File > Expert > Preferences.

    I see. I did not pay very much attention to the 'Template Default Values' page, but it looks like I should, there are many values there and I first need to sort them out.

    That page is not created by my plug-ins, but by CDT, and as such, ideally should be exported/imported by CDT, not by the plug-ins. Time permitting, I'll investigate.

    I did some checks and it looks like I used the storage intended for template default values also for other purposes (like jlink & openocd tabs defaults).

    probably the later should be moved to another storage.

    regarding the persistence of this storage, it remains to be handled by CDT, it is not under my plug-ins control.

    The common storage issue revealed by this ticked was extracted as a separate feature request #57.

    The original request applies to CDT, not to the plug-in, and, as such, cannot be solved here.
