    Now there is a single folder for storing user settings for all versions of Bforartists, which leads to problems with Addons, not all addons are compatible with different versions. And I would like to connect a different addon package for different versions. You need to make sure that the user settings for different versions of Bforartists have their own, as it is done in Blender. Thanks

    Right now the user preferences are stored in the same way as Blender, with the version settings stored in sub-folders 3.0, 3.1, 3.2, and 3.3 etc. At this moment we are using settings from the 3.3 folder – in the User Preferences folder. You can access this folder from the Edit menu. This is from the latest release of 3.2.1 of Bforartists. Version 3.1.3 works with the folder 3.2. We are usually a point number ahead of Blender since we fork from Master.

    If you’d like the same version of Bforartists with different configurations or preferences, you can use Application Templates, which will load different hotkeys, themes, addons and preferences – and after being configured correctly, would be available from the File menu each with their own system. You can even customize the splashscreen.

    Here is the official Blender documentation on it, but should be a similar workflow with Bforartists:
    https://docs.blender.org/manual/en/latest/advanced/app_templates.html

    Here is a more in depth tutorial on how to do it, even with custom python on first load.

    Hope that helps.

    I use Bforartists 3.0.1, 3.1.3 and 3.2.1 and only one user folder 3.2 has been created for all these versions and no other folders are being created, whereas in Blender I will have folders 3.0, 3.1 and 3.2 created for each version.

    I figured out, Fourartists 3.0.1 was already going to be based on Blender 3.2, so it has a shared folder with Bforartists 3.1.3. And Bforartists 3.2.1 created a folder 3.3. Thank you.

    Yes, we relay at the master of Blender. And the master of Blender is one version ahead already, compared to their release version.
