    I can't add or delete servers in unison.

    i'm trying to add a new server: news.gigabyte.com

    i do this:

    Servers: Edit Servers:
    "+" :
    Description="giganews":
    Server Address="news.giganews.com":
    port=119:
    My username and password.
    "OK"

    The new server does not appear in the server drop-down list.

    If I try to delete an old server, it continues to show in the drop-down list.

    please help.
    thanks,

    Hi

    I'm having the exact same problem.

    I tried searching the preferences folder, also the preferences under 'system' but i can't find the unison preference file.

    I've tried uninstalling/reinstalling but the issue remains and that file can't be found.

    Any help at all would be appreciated. :confused:

    Thanks

    Unison will not add servers

    I'm having a problem adding servers in Unison.

    This seem to have happened before, was it ever solved?

    I just purchased the program and found that it doesn't work.

    Unison->Servers->Edit...

    The changes are not saved at all. I'm running a MacBook Pro with OSX10.5.6

    com.panic.Unison.plist

    yes.

    quit unison.

    delete this file:
    /Users/yourusername/Library/Preferences/com.panic.Unison.plist

    start unison.

    Plan B:
    Uninstall Unison.
    Make sure that the file above was removed.
    Install Unison.

    :D
    Thank you so much! I've tried many newsreaders and despite it's quirkiness, I really needed Unison to work.
