How to save Custom Preset in ubuntu 14.04?

Post by Maxpower » Fri Apr 24, 2015 11:39 pm

Hello - what is the process to save a custom preset?

I cannot find any options in the preset panel or application menu to save a new preset (or save a modified existing profile)

I have searched this forum and the references to save options at the bottom of the preset panel are obviously out of date (there are none).

Using nightly builds under ubuntu 14.04 LTS. I have also tried the current stable release with no success.

Thanks.

As my original post explained - there is no "Presets" menu.

There is only "Preset List" and there are no GUI options to save a modified preset.

So my question remains: "What is the process to save a custom preset?"

Running in Ubuntu Unity? Unitiy "hides" application menus in the bar at the top of the screen IIRC. I don't run Unity (or ubuntu) so I could be mis-remembering. But they are there somewhere.

@Maxpower: If you move your mouse cursor to the upper left corner of the screen you should see the menu of the current window.

It's a controversial thing. OS X does it this way - in some way it makes sense, it some way it does not.

You can change it, if you don't like it:
System Settings --> Apperance --> Behavior --> Show the menus for a window...
