I truly hope this hasn't already been inquired about in some manner, but if it has I'm not even sure what to search for. Here it goes:
Up until now, I've kept a backup of labview.ini around so that if my computer dies or if I move to a new PC I don't have to spend time reconfiguring options. It dawned on me tonight that there are a lot of other customizations that LabVIEW developers use. If heavily relied upon, these customizations can be painful to lose. For instance:
Palette customizations (Including "Place VI Contents" or Merge VIs)
custom icon templates
...you get the idea. (This is a pretty lame list, but it's all I could think of off of the top of my head)
There really ought to be a tool to consolidate all of these options down to the nitpicking details so that they can be exported in the form of a single file. (let's say a zip file, hypothetically) The user could then access this tool under "Tools-Advanced->Import or Export user settings" or some similar option.
This way, if the user's PC becomes unusable or they are forced by IT department mandate to move to another PC, they could simply import their user setting file and the whole development environment would be configured to their liking, complete with customizations.
