Starting jEdit

This is covered in the User's Guide, but there still seem to be a lot of questions about it.

Keep jEdit running in the background

Start jEdit with the -background switch. jEdit will keep running even when all windows have been closed. If you want to start it in the background without opening any windows, use the -nogui switch too.

Open multiple instances of jEdit

use the -noserver switch to start a new instance of jEdit that doesn't not start or connect to an edit server.

Use a different directory for jEdit settings

use the -settings switch to specify a different directory, like -settings=H:\.jedit. you may also want to use the -norestore switch to prevent jEdit from trying to reopen your previously open files. Use the -nosettings switch to skip user settings all together.
