I'd like to set some simple preferences-- like loading the last sketch on startup-- and have looked over the preferences.txt file. I can see that it retains prior sketch info, but how to get it to load on startup is not clear. Are the multiple parameters in this file documented anywhere?

hi bshapiro

My apologies for the delay getting back to you. I'll get in touch with our IDE guru and ask him to post a reply.

All of that is inherited from Arduino (which inherits it from "Processing.") I don't think that they're documented anywhere; they're supposed to be either "obvious" or rely on you looking at the source code.

It will automatically remember the last sketch and window size if you quit instead of close. In other words, if you use ctrl+q or file-quit, it will remember. If you close with the red X, it will not.
