Debbugging your preferences
If you're having problems with preferences being saved (perhaps the right panels are not being shown that you've selected), it's sometimes useful to inspect the settings that are stored locally on the browser you're experiencing issues with.
Firstly you'll need to open your browsers developer tools. This is different for each type of browser (so if you're not familiar as to how, please run a google search)).
Once the developer tools are open, in the console you should see a message similar to the one below:
Note that you need to enter an unlocking code to access your settings. In this case, I would simply type
ok3n8h1o into the console and hit return.
Now you're able to copy the entire
jsbin object and share it (jsbin support) for debugging.
In the console (again) run the command
JSON.stringify(jsbin) and copy the response. Note that in chrome's console, you can run
copy(jsbin) and this will copy for you.
