Toolbox Preferences

Toolbox Preferences
In windows > dockable dialogs > tools

I hide some tools and rearrange them
to different places within the toolbox.

I also drag some dockable dialogs together
under the toolbox.

When I quit the Gimp and reopen it, the toolbox and dialogs are set to default
and the tools that I've hidden are back in the toolbox.
Gimp is ignoring my preferences.

How do I make the Gimp to obey me? Eh? Bad boy.

RE: Toolbox Preferences
Check:

1) where the files are: normally, "toolrc" (for the Tools palette), and sessionrc (for the dialogs setup) in your Gimp profile(*)

2) if you have the R/W access to them


(*) Go to Edit/Preferences/Folders, most folders are under a ".gimp-2.6" folder which is your Gimp profile.

RE: Toolbox Preferences
To answer my own question, on Edit / Preferences / Tool Options, click on
Save tool options on exit and that solves the problem. If that option is unchecked,
click on Save Tool Options Now everytime you make changes to the toolbox.

RE: Toolbox Preferences
"Save Tool options" mostly saves the "Tools options" (active color/gradient/pattern, and for instance, the font in the Text tools and whether you use guides in the Crop tool).
