use QSettings::IniFormat everywhere
Review Request #129511 - Created Nov. 20, 2016 and updated
|René J.V. Bertin|
A while back already there was a consensus on the frameworks-devel ML (backed by a few related RRs) that it was best to standardise on the
QSettings::IniFormatto reduce the number of unnecessary platform differences, and to avoid storing settings in the registry on MS Windows.
I've been running KTextEditor with this patch for almost a year; somehow I forgot to submit it for review until now.
Tested since December 2015 on OS X 10.9.5 .
I think that the decision to go for "ini-format-always" is up to the Sonnet guys, and then we have to adapt here accordingly. We just read the global setting here and it has to be the same as Sonnet is using otherwise we only get the default value. The settings handling in Sonnet is not optimal. The applications can not have their own private Sonnet settings it is always global :( At one point I was planning to create a patch to expose the Sonnet setting object so that an application could set it's own private settings, but I never came around to doing it...
