PM V5.0 keeps losing settings
« on: February 14, 2013, 02:15:12 PM »
Hi

When i updated a while back to the PM V5.0 on my Macbook pro with operating system OS X 10.8.2, when i go to the ingest window its the default screen, i save the parameters of the folders etc, eject after injest etc, and when i goto re ingest when i have a new selection of images the ingest screen is back to default, the same goes with the Save as function it defaults every time i open.

I went into my Disk Utility and did the repair disk permissions but still the same problem

Thank you in advance for your help

Try resetting your Preferences.  See this post for instructions: http://forums.camerabits.com/index.php?topic=8218.0

Thanks Kirk i tried your method and ended up re installing everything, but i couldn't find the registry com.camerabits.PhotoMechanic.registration in there, and its still not working. i changed some settings on my FTP and the changes didnt revert back, this is so strange.

The Mac OS X system doesn't have a 'registry'.  The com.camerabits.PhotoMechanic.registration file can be in two places and it is best if you don't delete it anyway.

What in specific is 'still not working'?

Hi Kirk,

When i open up the ingest window its default so for example the primary location is not set, the options like unsource after ingest etc,

i select the primary location and tick all the boxes i need too, and save them as football, rugby etc depending on what im doing, then i close the ingest window down.

When i open up the ingest window again, its back to the default, i have to goto the lightening symbol and load from there,

the same thing happens in the save as function, for example i set my dpi to 300 and the file size to about 2 mB and convert to sRGB, then if i shut down PM and re open, its reverted back to the 200dpi the sRGB box is un ticked.

Hope that helps Kirk im crap at explaining but i am appreciative of your quick response

Thanks

Ian
