Solved

Hello Dave,


We have indeed made some changes regarding these options, as many users asked for persistence. However, we are looking to continually update the user experience and thank you for sharing this. It will be passed off to our team for future consideration.


Best,

Hmm ... Not fixed in 6.5.2, as far as I can tell. Is there another "next release" I should be looking for? Thanks!

Hi Dave,


When I said next release I was refering to 6.6. Ver 6.5.2 has been launched as an emergency extra release so hopefully next week we will launch 6.6. and this will be fixed.
