I prefer K&R formatting style as opposed to the MonoDevelop default. These preferences are lost on updates.

What do you mean that the preferences are lost on updates?

What did you update?

If you updated from one version of MonoDevelop to another this is expected.   With major versions of MonoDevelop we change the location of the settings as they might not be compatible across versions.

If you mean something else, please provide the information and reopen the bug.

Miguel, we migrate settings between MD versions.
Comment 3 Mike Krüger 2012-03-30 18:05:03 UTC
I've now built-in K&R style easy selectable.
