When configuring the iOS SDK to a non-standard location (ie: anywhere but /Applications/), the preferences dialog will not save the directory selected. Selecting an Android SDK location does work, however.

I think you need to restart MD for this to work correctly (at the moment).

-> addin

When you say "not save" do you mean that it's actually not persisted, or that it doesn't take effect immediately?

We had a bug that made it require restarting MD to take effect but that's already fixed in master.

It doesn't persist at all, actually. I re-open the preferences tab and my iOS SDK path is wiped out. The Android SDK path works fine tho.

Found and fixed. The setting was persisted, except if you reopened the preferences panel and hit OK.
