Shared settings or share auto linking glossary?

    Question

  • Hi -- WLW is a fabulous product.  But I was surprised to see that when I signed into the same Live account and worked on the same blog on different machines, I had to configure the settings/options AGAIN.   Is is really the case that WLW is not sharing the same online profile and settings?    If so, I would LOVE to see this as a future feature:  option to "Use same settings wherever I log in".   Otherwise, everyone has to maintain duplicate copies of Auto Linking glossaries, etc etc. 

    Thanks, Keith

  • Settings such as you mention are stored locally on the PC and are not part of what is stored on your blog sever.  Until the day that Microsoft adds this feature you might want to look at plug-ins in the gallery.  There are many that will import/export those settings.  With that plug-in installed all you need to do is save them on somewhere like a USB thumb drive and you quickly have what you need on which ever PC you are working on.
