Summary0004443: Safe Mode (ala LibreOffice) that offers comprehensive options to deal with user config files
DescriptionApparently LO has a cool feature that helps users deal with corrupt profile/config files. It's called Safe Mode. It backs up the current config files and uses a vanilla copy. This would be mean: No more asking users to back up their ~/.FreeCAD/ and ~/.config/FreeCAD directories (well at least the majority of usecases).
