In my experience, in 2.1.2, the Distribution Builder doesn't forget 
it's settings. In the DB use File | Save or choose "Save" when you 
close the DB stack window.

There have been Saving problems in earlier versions of the DB. Maybe 
that's what you are running into?

That said, I have totally given up and stopped using the "Save As..." 
feature of DB where you can save your build settings out to another 
stack file. It is buggy and error prone.

Instead I just do "File | Build Distribution", enter all my information 
in there, and save the main distribution builder stack. This means I 
can only have one saved app build profile for any version of Runrev. 
It's kind of a pain.

As mentioned above, there is a Save As feature, but don't even bother 
using it in my opinion.
