#60 Colors preference not saving


I am using Tinn-R on Windows XP 64-Bit. I have adjusted the color preferences for the the default R_complex. However, when I exit the program the changes I made are not saved and default back to the original (with the exception of the Active Line (BG) color). Is it possible to save the preferences or must they be set with each use?

    Sorry, I wonder it is not a bug!
    Read the topic "Colors preference" it the User guide (Help/Main/HTML).


    You will see the below:


    Tinn-R has four multi-highlighters: HTML complex, PHP complex, R
    complex and Sweave, described below:

    1. HTML complex = HTML & JavaScript
    2. PHP complex = HTML & JavaScript & PHP
    3. R complex = R & URI ('<<<' begin URI
      '>>>' end URI)
    4. Sweave = TeX & R ('>>=' begin R
      '@' end R)

    URI : Uniform Resource Identifiers.
    R complex: The main syntax is R, '<<<' and '>>>' are the tags which
    enable the user to insert a block of URI syntax.
    Sweave : The main syntax is TeX, '>>=' and '@' are the tags which
    enable the user to insert a block of R syntax.

    These highlighters haven't priorities when you set the syntax color
    preferences. Thus, if you change the colors' preferences of any of
    these multi-highlighters (HTML complex, PHP complex, R complex and
    Sweave) these settings will be valid only in the current Tinn-R
    session and will not be saved when Tinn-R is closed. So, if you want
    to make permanent changes, set the preferences from all simple
    highlighters (R, TeX, HTML, JavaScript, PHP and URI).
