Solution-level vs IDE-level settings

Preferences for Rider's front-end features, which are based on IntelliJ Platform, are saved in the directory-based format — in XML files in two specific places:

  • Your IDE settings — such as IDE layout, preferred keymap, editor settings — are saved in your user profile (%APPDATA%\JetBrains\Rider2023.3 on Windows, ~/.config/JetBrains/Rider2023.3 on Linux, and ~/Library/Application Support/JetBrains/Rider2023.3 on macOS).

  • Your solution-specific settings — for example, Version Control integration, code style preferences — are saved under .idea\.idea.[Solution_Name]\.idea (hidden on macOS) in the solution directory.
