In the preferences menu I would like to add a second URL to the "Additional Boards Manager URLs:". What's the proper format?


enter image description here

The URLs are separated by commas. If you separate them with a space they will be considered a single URL.

Alternately, clicking the icon to the right of the text will create a popup where URLs can be entered one per line.

I had to restart the IDE for the change to take effect.

    what old IDE do you use? the IDE allows to edit the list as one URL at line in a text area. and the restart is not necessary in current IDE versions – Juraj Jun 8 '20 at 7:16
  • @Juraj, 1.8.12, that's the current version at arduino.cc. On my computer, the new manager file was not read until I restarted the environment. Perhaps you're running a beta? – Mark Harrison Jun 8 '20 at 17:33
  • did you miss the icon after the "Additional Boards Manager URLs"? field? it is clickable. and the package is available without restart of the IDE. – Juraj Jun 8 '20 at 17:57
  • @Juraj, I mistook that as a clipboard icon for copying! You should add that as an answer. – Mark Harrison Jun 8 '20 at 18:21
