    Can't save any custom workspaces AE CS6? (recently upgraded to OSX 10.9 rMBP)

    sean healy Level 1

      Hello -

       

      since transferring my CS6 across to my new laptop running 10.9 -

      I can't save any custom workspaces... it's driving me crazy having to move everything around every time i restart AE.

       

      - I arrange the workspace and save it as a custom name - this appears in the menu.

      *However* - upon restart of AE - this custom name is no longer there, and the workspace is once again, an old workspace I had, with windows everywhere.

       

      - I can reset STANDARD workspace - but even then - when I change to another workspace, then change back to STANDARD again, it reverts to the older, messsy version of standard workspace i had...

       

      so there's some issue with saving for me....

       

      - I checked 'get info' to see that my workspace related preferences in the library folder had read/write access and even changed that to everyone has access...

      After doing this, I got this error below, when resetting STANDARD workspace, saving project, then switching to another workspace - and then switchng back to STANDARD...

      it still brought up the messy workspace version, not my newer reset version, and gave this message:

       

      "After Effectswarning: Error parsing properties list from file ".......Preferences/Adobe/After Effects/11.0/ModifiedWorkspaces/UserWorkspace11.xml"

       

      (I"ve also repaired permissions with Disk Utility ( there were a lot needing repair, but none were explicitly adobe, and didn't solve problem on laptop reboot )

       

      I've been trying to find a solution online, without success so far...

       

      Any advice greatly appreciated...

      (And I wonder what this problem might have wider ramifications for my version of AE? )

       

      thanks!
