I've only been using After Effects for a week, and I love it! The only issue i'm having with it is the fact that it is saving these pref.txt files. I don't mind having the main "Adobe After Effects 18.0 Prefs.txt" file, as that would keep the preferences in, Edit > Preferences > General (Windows) or After Effects > Preferences > General (Mac OS) the same from porject to project. That's all well and good!
The problem is that the Text, Paint, and other panels are acting the same way. If I open up After Effects, change parameters in the Paint/Brush panel (brush diameter, roundness, color, opacity, etc.), close out of that project without saving and open a "New Project", the Paint/Brush tool is exactly how I left it in the project I just closed out of. If I go into my /User/Library/Prefrence/Adobe/After Effects folder and delete the specific pref.txt folders the problem panels are reset, but thats a little annoying to have to do everytime I open a new project.
I've checked the settings in After effects multiple times and scrolled through the internet without any prevail. Anybody have any suggestions?!?
