Affects Version/s: 2.0
Fix Version/s: None
Environment:Mac OS X 10.13.4, Mac Pro (Mid 2010)
When quitting Picard, settings are not saved. Window size and location, login details, file naming strings -everything resets to defaults. I have to enter/change all of this on each launch. Oddly, this happens on my account but if I create a fresh account it doesn't happen there.
Updated: I've figured out why this was happening (and probably why I also had the problem mentioned here: https://tickets.metabrainz.org/browse/PICARD-1212)
This is due to a permissions error on the ~/.config folder. For some reason the owner was system, not myself. Once changed, this resolved. For whatever reason (system upgrade from 10.12-10.13??) the permissions were changed. .config isn't a typical location for OS X .app configs, so only Picard was experiencing problems. This is also why Sambhav was unable to produce the error on
PICARD-1212. I created a fresh user account and didn't experience the bug, I then ran another python app and it too experienced a loss of settings - this led me to the .config folder. It's also why I couldn't find a settings file, because Picard had no permission to create one!
For those affected, this in terminal should sort:
PS. This platform sucks. I've just edited several times on 2 different posts to try and mention, and it's showing no visible signs of doing so.
