Client, subject, and other personalized information is kept in
a file called settings.mdb. This file is located in the
same directory as Déjà Vu itself. (Default
C:\Program Files\DejaVu.) The file is overwritten when you reinstall
Déjà Vu (not when you upgrade it), so back it up
It is possible to change the location of the filethis may
be done to avoid backing it up in every reinstallation, to share
it on a net, or for convenience (E.g.: placing it in a directory/folder
you normally back up):
Copy settings.mdb to another directory e.g.: \\ComputerNetName\settings
Go to Start > Run; type Regedit
Navigate to HKEY_LOCAL_MACHINE/SOFTWARE/DejaVu/SettingPath
(or you can go to Edit>Find and type SettingsPath. Be
sure you are at the above directory.)
Right click SettingsPath and select Modify
Type the complete path of your new directory including
the name of the file (e.g. \\ComputerNetName\settings\settings.mdb).
If this is a net installation, be sure to use the computer's
network name and share that directory.
To share your settings on a net, all your DV3s should be pointing
to the same settings file (Path used on 5th bullet should be the
same for all computers).

Macintosh systems, lines of text are terminated with a carriage
return, ASCII character #13. On Unix systems, lines are terminated
with the new line character #10. On Windows, they're terminated
by both: CR LF.
Mac or UNIX files are converted into Windows files, those paragraph
markers act funny. They look like proper paragraph markers,
but are not. You can search for the ASCII 13 or 10 character
and see, what you actually got in your file.

the degree sign in the non-breaking space character are placed
lower than the original middot and degree signs to facilitate
differentiation between them.
