    Hi folks,

    Strangely, in the command manager file menu, we have the option to “load”, but not to “save”!

    I suspect that the option “rename” will actually save the settings to a file somewhere.

    If that’s the case, could anyone tell me where on my peecee i can find that file?

    And if not, how do you save your custom settings?!

    It’s kinda clunky – you duplicate your current manager (up in the file menu of the command manager), then make your changes, make sure your changed manager is the one selected for use, then rename that duplicated manager (Rename is again up in the file menu). I guess they ran out of “save as” slots in the menu.

    If you save your layout as the default startup layout, that new manager should be the one to load when you make a new file. If not you can set it to the command manager to the one you want active and then save an empty project as “new.c4d” and put this next to your C4D executable in the program files folder, and any new file you make will load this file with everything set up the way you like.
