1.6.2 Beta - Settings lost on install

Postby Scytale » Wed Oct 01, 2008 7:31 am

Scytale - Installing on top of the old version;
- Custom install features (e.g. Saying no to Sample Decks) is not remembered
- Settings not remembered; e.g. Align preview pane right
- Filter not remembered

Gaddlord - What do you mean not remembered? How did you installed on top of old version. Can you provide the sequence of steps you do in order to reproduce?

1) Install 1.6.1 into a directory
2) Open 1.6.1 and modify some setting, e.g. preview pane right, custom filter
3) Install 1.6.2 into the same directory
4) Open 1.6.2 and the modified setting have gone

The settings are stored in a different from the installation folder place.

It is not always safe to move settings from one older version to newer since some of the old settings may not be present any more. Usually it is safe but you may miss some new UI menus.

And automated settings upgrade will be better. If you like this feature vote for it. http://mtgstudio.uservoice.com/forums/16948-mtg-studio-suggestions/suggestions/1610769-be-able-to-import-settings-from-older-versions-?ref=title
