Don't be -- we've all been there. We're an easy-going bunch. We'll only

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.
