The first likely possibility is you have placed the EOF program in a protected area of the file system, such as within "Program Files" or "Program Files (x86)", which would cause Windows (by default) to interfere and prevent files being written. The latest versions of EOF should warn about that location in particular, but it's also worth checking to see if eof_log.txt is being updated. If not, there is probably some sort of file permissions issue with the folder EOF is stored in. Moving the EOF folder to a different place is worth a try. If that doesn't fix it, let me know.

As simply as the title says, I'm having trouble with my settings and preferences reverting after I exit EoF. I set them up the same way every time I use it, but with previous versions I needn't have worried about that, as it would save my settings for future use of the program. Any ideas on the fix, or something I'm doing wrong?

I had previously already had to fix that issue, of having it in program files. I simply extracted it straight to the downloads folder and nested it there instead. As for eof_log, I've no idea how to read it, as far as what's happened when, but I don't see anything in there about the settings changing or being unable to save.

 

I've got a link to the eof log in it's current state here: https://www.dropbox....of_log.txt?dl=0

The log file doesn't show the preferences getting written until the program is formally closed (ie. Esc or File>Exit). If you can re-send the log while EOF is closed, I could check it out.

Well, for some reason or another, it did finally end up saving. Not sure what prevented it before, but it's keeping its setup now!
