    Hiya! Is it normal, when updating AdiumX, to lose all my preferences? Is there a way to keep them all?

    Given the frequent updates to the program, I would hate to have to re-config the program every week. I figure there HAS to be a better way, but I guess i just don't know what it is. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    the preferences are usually in ~/Application Support/Adium 2.0
    Are you sure you're only updating the app?
    I just d/l the disk image, mount it, drag the app from the image to my /Applications folder, unmount it, delete the disk image...you get the idea ;)
    I haven't lost my preferences yet...
    submit a bug report (Help menu) if it keeps happening.

    Yep, I haven't lost any of my preferences either. As long as you're only dragging the icon to you apps folder, or where ever you have it, it shouldn't lose them.

    ubergeek (sorry, I'm on a PC and have no clue how to do the umlaut thing), didn't know you used Adium...do you ever post on the Adium Forums?

    edit: MacFan26 I think I've seen you on there, wasn't trying to leave you out or anything

    Nope, actually I'm not on there. I should probably register though, considering that everytime I'm talking about Adium it's always here :rolleyes:
