That is a problem, in fact Revolution won't allow you to load old 
config files into a more recent version, so I do end up having to 
re-generate my settings then. I agree that having the settings saved 
externally would be much better, but at the moment, I use what we've 
got :-)

I don't know what it is that makes it work for me and not you - 
probably some setting that I never touch...
