The first time you run Bluefish it will create a directory ~/.bluefish where all Bluefish's configuration options are stored. This includes all preferences, customized menus, highlighting-patterns, file history, etc.

Bluefish will work right out of the box, but you can and should take advantage of the many customizations available. Change the font in the main text view if you do not like the one which is offered by default, remove unused tool bars, add or edit snippets and edit the list of browsers and external programs.

If you are upgrading from a previous version, perhaps using the SVN, you should note that certain features may have changed. Please let us know if you encounter any difficulties.

If your settings become corrupted, unusable, or you simply want to revert to the defaults, you may safely delete the ~/.bluefish directory.
