12.0 Formatter Options not retaining settings issue


#1

Good news. First, this issue will be fixed in 12.1 (tomorrow’s beta for our beta users). Even better news, Andre and I came up with a work-around for current 12.0 users. Please see instructions below and let me know if it works for
you.

  1. Go to Options > General. Under “Application data directory” section click on “Open folder”

  2. Keep this folder open in Windows Explorer and Close Toad

  3. In WE, go into the User Files folder and open FmtPlus.opt with a text editor

  4. Remove the [PlfOptionsOracle] section completely

In my case, I removed the following lines:

[PlfOptionsOracle]

FlagRecommendations=3

CodeReviewFilter=Default 104 113 114 125 131 137 201 206 210 211 302 307 315 317 403 404 407 513 514 516 521 532 533 541 550 554 555 558

Be sure not to remove [Qp5FormatterOptions] or anything below it.

  1. Save the file

  2. Reopen Toad and format something

[PlfOptionsOracle] section contains legacy settings that are no longer used by Toad, so removing them is completely harmless.

Thanks,

Brad
