Quartz builder - Published Parameter settings

noonanon's picture

Hi I finally figured how to get my published parameters to show up in a hud window over a screensaver level fullscreen window (by editing the qtz information plist in editor instead of in QB). The reason I wanted to make these parameters accessible was so other people could change the location of their media folder and also adjust a couple of other resolution type settings. Problem is when change them there is no obvious way for the QB app to remember them, they just default back to the original settings from when the app was originally published :/ Advanced settings has a "Window Autosave Name" text field which implies to me there might be a way of getting apps to remember their previous settings - any ideas

Also I noticed copy paste key command doesn't work in the hud window, tho you can control-click it

Correct, QuartzBuilder 1.2 doesn't preserve input values. I'm working on this for a future release.

That setting is currently used to store window location and similar Cocoa attributes.

Yeah, that's an artifact of the way Cocoa works --- there's no Edit menu in the application, so the keyboard shortcut doesn't trigger it. I'll try to address that in a future release.
