Version: 2341.2
VS: 2019 16.3.1

When exporting settings (to .reg) from one instance of VS2019 and importing those same settings into another instance of VS2019 (different machine), the syntax colorings are not preserved and must be set manually.

The colors are stored as Visual Studio settings. Can you please export and import those settings as well?

Tools -> Import and Export Settings...

Ah OK. That's not immediately obvious, but good to know. It would be nice if VAX had an import settings function that would intelligently export and import all of its settings, regardless of how that information is stored on the backend. The .reg business is a bit hacky (and in this case, incomplete).

Sorry for the confusion. We are aware that exporting your current VA settings isn't quite as simple as it could be, and this is something we are looking to address one of these days:
