[Tex/LaTex] Backup of user-defined entries of autocompletion in Texmaker


Where does Texmaker store the user-defined entries for the autocompletion feature? I'd like to back up (as well as export) my own entries…

You can backup all of your settings via Options→Settings File→Save a copy of the settings file and restore them with Replace the settings file by a new one in the same menu.


The .ini file you get as a backup contains the custom autocomplete entries; in my file, it was line 27:

Editor\UserCompletion=\\ex, \\documentclass{\x2022}, \\addfontfeatures{\x2022}, \\makeatletter, \\makeatother, \\newfontfamily\x2022{\x2022}, \\newfontfamily\x2022[\x2022]{\x2022}, \\tiny, \\scriptsize, \\footnotesize, \\small, \\normalsize, \\large, \\Large, \\LARGE, \\huge, \\Huge, \\toprule, \\midrule, \\bottomrule, \\begingroup, \\endgroup, \\parbox{\x2022}{\x2022}
