Description Jeffrey Stedfast 2011-09-08 10:51:36 UTC
A user on the MonoTouch mailing-list pointed out that when he upgraded to MonoDevelop 2.6, his keybindings were lost (and likely other settings as well).

In reality they weren't lost (MD 2.6 just uses a different settings directory than 2.4 did), but the perception is that they were.

MonoDevelop should probably offer to migrate a user's previous settings the first time it is run (and/or possibly even offer to do it at any point? I don't know).

This will likely also be a problem for users when they upgrade to 2.8 which is why I've marked it as Version=Trunk.

It migrates settings automatically. Do you have a repro for cases where it doesn't?

I don't, no. Might have to ask the guy on the MonoTouch mailing-list for a repro case.

I've asked him to get you what version of MonoDevelop he was running before. Hopefully he responds. If not, I guess we can close this.

This is already fixed.
