Some parts of WorldEdit can be changed by editing a configuration file that's bundled with the addon. The location of this file depends on the platform the addon is running on, but the path relative to the com.mojang folder is minecraftWorlds/(world folder)/behavior_packs/WorldEditB/scripts/config.js.


Any changes to this file will not stay when you update the addon. You must copy this file and put it back after updating to keep your settings.


%localappdata%\Packages\Microsoft.MinecraftUWP_8wekyb3d8bbwe\LocalState\games\com.mojang\(path to config)


/storage/emulated/0/Android/data/com.mojang.minecraftpe/files/games/com.mojang/(path to config)
It's recommended that you use CX File Explorer to access this path. You must also have Minecraft's storage mode set to External.


Minecraft/games/com.mojang/(path to config)

Dedicated Servers

For servers, there's a dedicated file that holds configuration data called variables.json located in config/default or config/<module_uuid>
