Sounds like the old trackpad glitch again.

Rev only has the one preferences dialog -- the one under the Rev menu
(on Windows and Linux it's under Edit.) What Mark means is that your app
browser settings are saved to Rev's preferences so they "stick" each
time, but it's an auto-save, so there's no place to manually enter it in
the Preferences dialog. Rev remembers lots of things you do and resets
them automatically on next launch. But I'm too tired right now to
remember what it remembers.
BTW, I did enter a bug report about group controls not showing up in the
app browser when you're in edit mode, and it was confirmed. That used to
work some versions ago, I'm not sure when it broke.
