Seems this change has some sideeffects I did not experience when I played with this, but which are now uncovering as it hits people usinjg KF 5.70 : config seems to write any settings, also the ones inherited from global defaults, as view-specific settings, and when reading them in again on session restart, they all become view-specific overrides, thus no longer influencable by global settings. Is that due to some other change elsewhere, or did I just completely miss this? Possibly though this was mentioned before though: In D27844#624950 <https://phabricator.kde.org/D27844#624950>, @dhaumann wrote: > I guess we can give this a try. As I understand, though, with this patch you will never be able to use e.g. a global zoom once you change the zoom of a view. This was different before this patch. If so, I did not get the message, as I was focussed on the property itself, "zoom", which is not covered by the settings handled here. So, what to do? I would argue that revert would be the best option for now, as the sideeffects are more grave than what this patch tried to solve.
