    FGU not saving my preferences between sessions

    The last two times I've logged in, I've had to reopen the modules section and reselect which modules I want open, and which I'm going to share with the players. I also have to reset windows that I've moved to parts of the screen and locked. When I log back in, they're back to their default position.
    I'm playing Pathfinder 2.
    Anyone else have this issue?

    I don't have this issue.

    After you open your modules and exit FGU, check in the campaign directory for the campaign you're having the issue with - look for a file called modulestate.xml - make a copy of this, then delete the original. Load up your campaign (you won't have any modules activated) and activate a couple of modules. Exit FGU and check the modulestate.xml file - see if it's been saved correctly, and it should contain data something like this, indicating the nsames of the modules that are loaded:

    Code:
    <?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
    <modulestate version="4.1" dataversion="20210708">
    	<module name="Doomsday Dawn - Player Guide">
    		<disallow />
    	</module>
    	<module name="FG Battle Maps">
    		<loaded />
    	</module>
    	<module name="Pathfinder 2 RPG - Lost Omens The Mwangi Expanse">
    		<loaded />
    	</module>
    	<module name="Pathfinder Advanced Player's Guide">
    		<loaded />
    	</module>
    	<module name="Pathfinder Lost Omens Ancestry Guide">
    		<loaded />
    	</module>
    	<module name="Pathfinder Lost Omens Azarketi Ancestry Web">
    		<loaded />
    	</module>
    	<module name="Pathfinder Second Edition Core Rules">
    		<loaded />
    	</module>
    	<module name="Troubles in Otari">
    		<loaded />
    	</module>
    </modulestate>
    If there's no data in here, then it might be an issue with saving that file to your hard drive - check that the whole of your <FG app data>\campaigns directory has full access for your user account, re-apply these rights if needed.

    Okay. I went thru and messed with it like you suggested. Got it working now. Thanks, Trenloe.

    How do you normally exit Fantasy Grounds when you are done for the day?

    I used to just right-click and click exit to desktop. Lately I've been /save and then exiting.
