Where does Designer stores user defined custom colors?


Not applicable

Everytime I restart Designer, all my custom colors are reset to white. Which is pretty annoying. So I want to export them to a file at least.

I figured, that user defined custom colors in Windows are stored in the Registry in:

[HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Control Panel\Custom Colors]

or alternatively in:

[HKEY_USERS\.DEFAULT\Control Panel\Colors]

But apparently they are not. Changes made to the custom color palette in Designer are not stored in the registry. Those values still remain FFFFFF.

Does anyone know, where Designer stores user defined custom colors? Is there a 'secret' undocumented .ini-file I missed?
