FreeCAD: How to reset user preference

Update: February 26, 2017
FreeCAD 0.16

You may want to reset the mouse operation settings, background color of the 3D view etc... to the initial state on installation.

Those settings are saved in a following file.

  • On Windows: %AppData%\FreeCAD\user.cfg
  • On Linux or Mac OS X: $HOME/.FreeCAD/user.cfg

If FreeCAD is runnning, close it once. And after deleteing the above file, restart FreeCAD. The new, initial state user.cfg will be created and the FreeCAD user preference will be reset.
