Settings regularly reset despite saving preferences, addons, and keybinds. I can’t work like this.

Hi @sergeikdi. Can you explain when this happens? Do you mean, you lose these settings when you first install a new version from the launcher, or at other times?

I still can’t get anything to bake. After a few minutes, I kill Blender because it seriously can’t take that long to bake a few musgrave textures.

Also, I double checked my hierarchy and all scaling is set to 1.0 yet the model comes into Omniverse at 10% the size. I think it’s been like this since the summer…

Hi @EDRobert.

Is there any chance you can provide .blend files that exhibit these two issues, so we can debug?

Please feel free to message me directly to provide the files, if you prefer. But I understand that sharing the files might not be possible.
