PR 6339: Preference Packs: Add revert to backup option

Post by chennes »

https://github.com/FreeCAD/FreeCAD/pull/6339

When you apply a preference pack, a backup of your old user.cfg file is stored for a week, in case you change your mind, or discover a problem with the new settings. This simple GUI element allows you to restore to that backed-up config file directly from within FreeCAD, without needing to dig through your filesystem.

I "lost" the Dark sheet theme, "preference pack", how is it reinstated manually?

If you mean the "Behave-dark" pack seen in my screenshot above, it's installed using the Addon Manager -- if you switch to showing only Preference Packs there it will be at the top of the list. And the bottom ;)
