Settings preferences results in message about having reset from Mx8 skin to Dark Default

Post by Ian Craig » Thu Apr 09, 2020 10:44 am

Hi,

Sorry, I forgot to mention this before but
since using the Mx8 skin, when I attempt to change any preferences via the menu dialog, I get a message that I have to chosen to change to the Dark skin as default and that it will occur after I restart the programme (which means having to re-load the preferences again to set it back to the Mx8 skin, which is annoying). It has happened with all versions up to build 458 (I'm just about to install 459 now).

HI,

I'm having trouble duplicating this. Give me an example of a preference to change that will trigger the problem.

I tried changing a Display preference and an Interface preference, clicked OK, restarted Mixcraft, and I never got that message.

I'm not sure what triggers it, it just keeps happening whenever I change anything on the preference dialog and click okay it informs me that I have chosen to change to the default skin. I'll play about with it a bit and try to figure it out more

Here's a screenshot, as it happened with the first thing I tried, changing from Core Audio to ASIO

When I change to the Display dialog it has changed from the Mx8 skin to the Dark (Default) one, so I have to reset it to the Mx8 skin

Okay, it seems to have stopped doing it after setting it, closing the program and restarting it. Hopefully it will stay that way now :)

Hi,

I couldn't get it to happen at all. Let us know if you figure out how to duplicate it on command.
