µVISION: Attributes configuration in µVISION IDE

Information in this knowledgebase article applies to:

  • µVision ALL Versions


I would like to keep the specific visual settings of µVision across all computers. Are these settings stored somewhere in KEIL folder and if yes, what necessary steps should be taken for the same ?


Yes, these settings are stored in arm.prop and global.prop files which are stored in the [installation_path]\UV4\ folder, where [installation_path] is where you installed the MDK tools. Below is the list of attributes included in these files:

  • Properties for all file types
  • Properties for c/cpp files
  • Properties for asm files
  • Properties for other files
  • Setting for code completion and syntax check
  • Autosave for editor files
  • Vertical edge at right margin
  • Specification for text selection and caret line
  • Color for vertical edge
  • C/C++ Editor files fonts
  • Asm Editor files fonts
  • Editor Text files fonts

Once the desired attributes have been set, these 2 files can be copied to other KEIL folders to acheive the same visual settings.
