Duplicate FTP Connections after Import Preferences Settings
« on: February 19, 2021, 10:13:07 AM »
Hello
I use PM on desktop PC and Laptop.
After every new change on PC, I export Preferences Settings to update the laptop with new Preferences Settings.
The saved FTP Connections of my laptop are doubled as many times as I import the Preferences Settings.
This has been happening for a long time even on other computers.

I have added a bug in our tracking database.  Thanks for the report.

I investigated this further.  You need to uncheck the "Merge" checkbox in the Import dialog.  This will allow existing items to be overwritten when they have the same name.
