I would like to create and configure custom templates by editing the the Template.dat file from my web application. However, if there is an active OE session open the .dat file automatically/periodically gets overwritten with the active session's configuration. Thus I can not effectively manage the .dat file outside of OE.
1. Can I disable the autosave functionality
2. Can OE actively and periodically load (i.e. "refresh") the configuration within Template.dat without having to restart the OE application?
1. This is simple - you can setup it in the Options dialog - Advanced section.
2. Sorry, this is impossible yet - we haven't implemented this.
Why do you need to do that modification? Perhaps, there is another way to achieve what you want.
