Hello Will and thank you for your reply,

That's not a bug, but is by design and is so that users can change their settings for that application session only, without having to change them back again. This is the way that most printers function, in Windows.
I completely agree that it is typical and intended behavior when printer settings
are not saved -- when only being changed from within an application and not from within the Windows "Devices and Printers" Control Panel.
However, it is my strong opinion that the same can not be valid for printer profiles
, all the more since there is the dedicated "Profiles Manager" where you can add, edit, rename and delete your profiles:
Since a new or modified printing profile is usually created based on a specific source document (e.g. Word document) and it usually takes a few (or many) iterations until the profile is polished and finished, it does not make sense that also profiles
are not saved when modifying them from within an application -- even if you explicitly click on "Save Profile" and are asked whether you want to overwrite the profile (which however does not happen and therefore is confusing to the user).
Summing up, while it is surely correct and normal Windows behavior that printer settings
are not saved between application sessions, printer profiles
absolutely should be saved, in order for the user to be able to easily create, maintain and refine one's settings portfolio.
Therefore, please consider changing the profiles
saving behavior (only), while keeping the settings
saving behavior of the PDF-XChange Printer dialog as is.
Thank you and
