Sound Forge 14 Doesn't Remember Preferences on Closure

DDT88 wrote on 10/10/2020, 9:09 PM

Every time I close Sound Forge 14 (x64 Build 111), it forgets any preferences and any toolbars that have been added to the main window. Is this a known error or is there a work around?

Currently running the application in Parallels 16.0.1 using Windows 10 2004 (Version 10.0.19041 Build 19041).

Any assistance would be appreciated.

 

Cheers

The title of your post is slightly misleading, IMO.

This might be a Parallels problem, not a Magix problem. How does SF work on its own?

Not sure. I can only run in Parallels. I have SF 10 installed for 3 years and there have been No issues.

I am not familiar with 'Parallels' or the possible interaction with SF.
Try resetting Sound Forge to the default settings (File menu). This will reset the Layouts as well (which could be the cause of the problem) . FYI, layouts (View menu) are stored in 'Username' \AppData\Roaming\Magix/Sound Forge folder (which is a normally hidden system folder).

btw, Welcome to the Magix Sound Forge community @DDT88.

Hi

The recommended method of installing a Windows only Magix product on a MAC is to use Bootcamp, making the MAC dual booting with a separate Windows only partition, this ensures that the software can access the hardware directly.

Parallels does not allow direct access to hardware - it simulates the hardware in the virtual system and also lowers the performance of the virtual system.

@rraud

I tried resetting the view and even saving a default. That's not made any difference. I'll try setting up a Bootcamp partition as suggested by @johnebaker

Thanks for your help.
