Default Random Preferences Reset

Hallo,
I get random preferences reset on PT Ultimate 2018.4. I'm on OSX Sierra 10.12.6 (fresh install). Does anybody know how to solve the problem?
Thank you.
Fulvio

Default Re: Random Preferences Reset

Any particular preference(s) that doesn't "stick"? Haven't had that issue here with 2018.3 on OS 10.12.3.

Hi,
I only change a few prefs from default e and it resets to default sometimes, all of them.

Here's a quick list:
Display>Organize Plugin Menu By: Category an Manufactor
Operation>Auto backup: Keep 20 most recent...
Operation>Auto backup: Backup every 1 minute
Operation>Record: Mute Record-Armed...
Editing>Fades>Crossfade:Equal Power
And some other.

It also resets Peripherals assignment.

This has been happening to me as well (tho not in 2019.10, fingers crossed) so bumping this up.

I'm guessing corrupt preference file, but have no idea what would corrupt it. If it happens often, backup your preference file and once defaulted copy the pref file back to its original location.

This is what I’ve been doing. It is definitely corrupt pref files. I’ve noticed that the “Pro Tools Prefs” file permissions get changed to “no access” for any use incl admins. It’s super-frustrating but just one of a cornucopia of PT issues for me.
