How can I tell FrameMaker to remember the changes in preferences permanently. For instance, I would like FM not to take automatic backup on save or create Lock File on Network. Now, each time I open FM, I have to set these options under preferences but as soon as FM is closed or crashes the options are back to original.

Hi,

 

Where are your preferences stored?

Mine are here:

c:\Users\myusername\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\FrameMaker\15\maker.ini

Can you check which file is changed, when you change something in your preferences?

There is also another maker.ini file here:

c:\Users\122REW49\AppData\Roaming\Adobe\FrameMaker\15\maker.ini

 

Possibly yours are in a directory where you do not have write permissions without administrator privileges.

 

Best regards

Thank you. Once, I ran Framemaker as administrator and did the changes, it is saved permanently. So, yes I did not have write permission!
