Hi,

Is there a quick way to save preferences? I have auto prompt/save prefs turned off and don't want to turn it on, quit FormZ, re-launch it and turn auto prompt/save off again when I make an adjustment to the way I work.

Thanks

Nick

Hi,

I see a menu to Save Preferences File at quit, but no option to save it without quitting.

Nick,

Oh, sorry -- click the New Preference file button.

You can then save this with a new name -- or just save over the old one if you like...

In the olde times the recommended way to deal with prefs was to make a note of anything you wanted to change. Quit and relaunch FZ and edit those things. This was to avoid accidentally changing parameters that could potentially destabilize FZ. Has this recommendation changed since v7?

The way it works now (and as described above) seems to indicate this?!

Peder,

This is not quite as important as it was in the past, but I still prefer the method you outline. There should not be any "destabilize" issues, but that way you will only save the preferences you want -- and not those that you have changed since you last launched formZ...
