Problem with the saved configuration

Dear Oleg,
In past weeks I have reported a problem with the saved configuration of projects.
See http://www.metaproducts.com/forum/Forums_Message.asp?id=16617&pg=2
(item 1 of that post).

I have been following this problem, and I can assure that it is still there:
If I change an item in a project's configuration, download it, and check its configuration
again, the "File Modification Check" settings (radio button) changed from
"Skip files on levels higher than...1" to "Download only modified and new files".
That is: it changes alone, without my intervention.
I have to re-set it to "Skip files on levels higher than...1".

This is very annoying because many times I find that the projects settings are
changed, and I feel that OE is not downloading correctly.
I see this problem many times a day.

(if you need, I can send you snapshots of the changed setting, but you will see
nothing more than what I have explained above...)

Regards,
Pablo.

How do you start the download? Do you use Ctrl+F5, Alt+F5 or Shift+F5 keys or the Download button submenu? If yes, then this really changes the Project setting and starts the download.

When I am setting up or polishing projects (when the problem appears), I start projects using the submenu Download / Start / and then Restart Download or Update Project.

I understand that this is equivalent to doing Alt-F5 or Shift-F5 (which I don't use), and in both manners my configuration should not be changed... Why the action of starting or restarting a project's download should change the configuration?

Thank you very much for your help... I need to understand this...
Regards,
Pablo

Yes, I agree that this should not change the Project settings. I will try to fix this in the next version.

Then, if I use Alt-F5 or Shift-F5 settings should not change ?
Only the submenu alters the settings ?

Both submenu and keys change the settings now. In the future version I will make both of them to keep the settings intact.

OK. I changed this behavior. Can you please test the updated version of the oe.exe file?

Oleg,
I have downloaded and tested this beta.
Unfortunately, it didn't work: after I have installed the new version, ALL my OE projects were
changed to "Download only modified and new files".
The usual configuration I use is: "Skip files on levels higher than...1", but this new OE changed
all projects to "Download only modified and new files".
Even if I try to save again with desired configuration, OE does not save it, and sets to
"Download only modified and new files".

Regards,
Pablo.

Sorry. Can you please load the same file again?

Oleg,
Now it seems to work !
I will continue testing to see if the configuration is altered. I will keep you informed if I find something wrong.
Thank you very much.
Pablo.
