You're only half right. There are *two* preferences: * core preferences: paths, libs, audio devs, startup flags * GUI-only preferences Forget all... clears the core preferences only. > If so I would assume when I "forget all" I would get > the "Would you like to create a folder in ~/Documents/Pd?" dialog but > instead if I "Forget all..." and $ rm ~/Documents/Pd I get: > > Pd documents directory cannot be found: > /Users/megrimm/Documents/Pd > Choose a new location? Your assumption is wrong. You did not clear the GUI preferences and the pd_docsdir plugin checks if the previous path exists. In your case it does not so it falls back by letting you know it doesn't exist and let's you choose/make a new one. > Should it not just reset to initial "Would you like to create a folder in > ~/Documents/Pd?" ? No, because, again, the docspath is still set in the GUI preferences. If you want to do a full purge, you need to clear the GUI preferences as well. On macOS, use: defaults delete org.puredata.pd.pd-gui Sorry if this sounds like "You're doing it wrong" but this release now has this split preferences system and I used the GUI prefs for the docspath as it's really a GUI-only setting. -------- Dan Wilcox @danomatika <http://twitter.com/danomatika> danomatika.com <http://danomatika.com/> robotcowboy.com <http://robotcowboy.com/>
