I am using Mac OS Sierra. I have PS6. I can make changes to Preferences but once I close and reopen photoshop it has gone back to the default preferences so I have to reload all my actions, change the ruler settings, etc EVERY time. How do I tell photoshop to save the preferences I tell it to?
This is probably caused by not having write permissions on the Photoshop Settings folder.
On a mac, the path to this folder should be Users/[user name]/Library/Preferences/Adobe Photoshop CS6 Settings
You need both read and write permissions on this folder, and probably also folders higher up in the folder structure.
Thanks for your suggestion... I did as you suggested and hoped it was that simple. I checked all the permissions on the individual settings folders and I do have read and write permissions. Is there anything else you can think of or suggest? Thank you.
I'm on Windows, so I can't really give you any further advice.
Let's hope a Mac person comes along.
