> It's really the same issue when you get down to it. IMO the command line flags should *not* save to the settings, but override what's in the settings at start. That matches command line flag behavior in pretty much all command line programs I've ever used and I see Pd saving those flag settings automatically an anomaly.
Thank you for your point of view!

Or just use the "Save all preferences" function in the "File" menu,
since we should avoid introducing even more command line flags.
