How to delete file/ usage history? [solved outside EA]
« on: July 26, 2017, 10:22:36 pm »
I digged into MDG and created several technology exports.

Now I realize: the dropdown of "open an existing mts file" is filled - and denies any new ones. And the existing ones occur in random order.

My question: how to get rid of these entries?

If I delete one in windows file explorer, EA does (obviuosly) not know and just tells me: oops, this is unknown and has no information stored.
But it persists as dropdown entry.

http://www.sparxsystems.com/enterprise_architect_user_guide/13.0/user_interface/configurelocaloptions.html
is quite quiet about.

Thanks, Shegit

I'd search in the registry (at a guess).

Well: yes, that works  :o

nagivate to HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-[...]\Software\Sparx Systems\EA400\EA\MTS Recent File List
... well, search for "MTS Recent File List" because replacing user id is not that obvious.

I just hoped for a ea internal solution.
