In nxqddb, you have three options to save your configuration settings to your hard disk:
.nxqddb_confdirectory using the file name convention
~/.nxqddb_conf/.yourhomedirectory.yourdatabaseThe settings stored in your ``Personal'' configuration override global and default settings.
~/qddb_fxrcwhere the tilda represents your home directory.
You must choose the Save menubutton from one of the above options in order for nxqddb to write your current session's configuration settings to the hard disk. Or, optionally you can turn on the ``Auto-save'' feature so that when you exit your session nxqddb will automatically store your session's configuration settings. Once you have saved your settings, the next time you start nxqddb, you can load the previously stored settings. To save/load your settings, choose one of the options beneath the ``Configure'' menubutton shown in figure 5.4.
Figure 5.4: Saving/Loading Configuration Settings
At startup, nxqddb loads the configurations in the following order:
Hence, settings from the Global configuration(if present) override any Default settings. And, the Personal configuration settings (if present) override both global and default settings.
