Default Cleaning Layout and pref files

Hi Eddie, how do I clean (delete), multiple layout files saved over the years.
What is the path to the folder where it is stored?
Thanks

Hi Eddie. Our S6 keeps forgetting it’s settings every night when powered down. Every morning I have to set the inputs to intercancel. It keeps changing to sum when power cycled. Should I delete these prefs?

Do you have the blue star set so that prefs are stored in PT ?

Hi Eddie.
Yes, the blue star is next to pro tools in the WS / applications window.

This means that the prefs are getting loaded on session open...make sure that the session has the right prefs stored in it.

Hi Eddie. Sorry for the delay in my reply.
Well, I set things up the way I like em. Save the session, re open, all’s well. End of day, power down. Next day, power up, link to xmon. Sources are back to sum.
