    I have been using cgerry tee for 8 months but suddenly i need to use it more often. The problem is, it does not save its settings like Tray Icon, CLick Event and startup minimized… everytime i have to open it exclusively after i login.

    Please help me. Its a great app and i dont want to change it.

    please write your operative system/version, be sure to use latest version (currently 0.25.3) and describe how to reproduce the bug(s)

    yes its a latest version, i am on ubuntu 11.10 using unity.
    Simple oepn cherrytree go to preferrences
    select you options like CLICK actions
    — Check Autosave options
    — Eable system tray icon
    — start minimized

    log out and settings are gone

    ok the problem here is that if you do not close the application properly, the new settings are not saved to disk, and the next time you log in cherrytree starts without the latest settings.
    if you logout/shutdown the pc without manually closing cherrytree first, ubuntu will kill cherrytree and all other applications you didn’t close before turn off/logout.
    so the solution is: when you change settings, be sure to close cherrytree normally once after that and your settings will be saved.

    but sould not this be done with some config file. lets say i save setting and its automaticlaly creats a config file and saves it. regardless of what i am going with it, This is really good since i use it as a tray icon.

    This is done with a config file that saves your setting when you close cherrytree so that when you’ll open it again it will start same as when you closed it.
    I didn’t think about people that do not close cherrytree but let the operative system kill it, but since you reported the problem I’m sure you’re not the only one that behaves this way… I’ll do something.

    well this is because, we move it like a an applet. and we expect it to behave like others. example SHUTTER, or Time tracker and many others. we dont like opening a seperate window that just keeps open until we work. It would be great if u make a solution,this is also because since its in applet no one really cares for closing it.

    Until I read the above discussion, I thought that perhaps my profile was damaged or CherryTree was incapable of saving preferences. My notes is among the 3-4 items open at all times until I need to kill my X session or reboot.

    If writing to the preferences file right away would be too much of a pain, maybe doing it during the autosave would be more feasible? If not, you might want to put a line at the top of the preferences window to warn users that their preferences won´t be saved until they close CherryTree manually.

    agree with you. i use Task couch as well its promts to save the file before i close it.

    I don’t know what’s wrong with my debian packages since none of them are opened properly from the latest version of ubuntu software manager.
    I didn’t notice because I use gdebi.
    Install gdebi then right click on the package and select “open with gdebi package installer”.
    Cheers.
