Works for me -- I just checked by choosing 1.06, saving that as a preset, setting it to 0.01 and loading the preset (which correctly reset scale to 1.0). What version are you using (I'm using a recent git version, I'd guess that if there was a bug, any 2.7 version would have it fixed.) I guess also it is possible that one of your preset files is corrupt and causing problems. > > >>Clear separation of default settings for different tools is such an > obvious > >>thing... > > I agree with that.
