Default Can't save UI Customizations or Presets in 2021.6

It doesn't save Color Palette presets at all. It doesn't create a preset file and also doesn't save quick presets and it looks like they forgotten that they removed Resources section in System Usage window.

I wonder if they need more beta testers?
I installed, launched, and this is the first thing I found.
I carefully customized the colors to my dark preference, saved it, went to light mode, customized it, saved it.
Went to recall my dark setting . . . uh - nothing there. Wasted my time.

What a great feature.

Edit: Update . . .
Actually it does work. You just shouldn't use "Save Settings As" first time around.
You must use "Save Settings", then after that you can use "Save Settings As".

While editing a UI Theme parameter, Page Up/Down in the Edit Window does not work.

Like the header says..

I change the UI settings, SAVE or SAVE AS and give the file a name
but it doesn't save the file in the COLOR PALETTE folder.

Similarly, I can't apply the settings to a 1-5 preset (command+click), just resets it all to the default settings.

Yeah. Several others have found this to be the case.

Somebody over on Gearspace (used to be Gearslutz) is saying that any color change presets one makes are not being saved. Haven't tried it - just mentioning what I'm seeing there. Does anyone know if they're global or per session?

Agreed.

I tried saving it to a new (Mac) folder, but interestingly enough, I got this message. So, maybe there was a bit of code that needs to have its Text String changes? PS - I tried making a new folder in there called "Window Presets". Pro Tools didn't like that either.

The Color Palette changes won't save, but I may have found a hint when I tried to Save them to a newly-created subfolder (on Mac). Check out the attached Error Message.

They are saving for me (remember to command + click on one of the five preset buttons, like we do for zoom and clip effects presets).
