BOM Command line options meaning?

I’ve been making some edits to the BOM generation to make it work for how I want it to work, but I don’t understand some things about how the command line is set up and stored for the different plugins.

The command line for the BOM generation has:
python 'path to script' "%I" "%O"

The BOM script that I built takes another input that has some PCB information (like PCB material, copper weight, etc) that I want in the BOM file. My question is how can I add a new command line argument so that I can have the settings file in the project file. I feel like I’m explaining myself badly.

There is the "%I" argument, which is relative to the project path. That’s what I would like to add. I would have a board settings file per project that would be in the root project path.

On the other hand, I was wondering where the command line setting was stored. When I first imported the script, it had the same command line as the script I edited it from. But I changed the command line and it seems to persist through closes/opens. How can I make sure whatever settings I need are saved?

Let me know if you need more info.


Thinking about it, I think I’m just going check to see if the BOM is there, and if it is I will make a copy of it so I can check notes/edits and move them to the new BOM by hand. This should be okay!
