Stable-Ids question

Recommended Posts


I encountered a "duplicate key" issue in stable-ids.txt after the recent update to Artic Fox and gradle 7. I cleared the stable-ids.txt file in the knowledge it would repopulate. However, after the recent release of my skin I have had reports of users, unable to apply their backups to restore the skin settings. 

The question is, is there a relationship between the ids in stable-ids.txt and a user exported settings? 

If so this would mean i should never change stable-ids.txt

I hope you can shed some light on this,

I had this happen to me. My exported PA Settings backup file now appears to contain two individual configurations for the $YAPS$ skin, one of which is applied to build 158 and earlier, and another one that is applied to build 159/160. So I can't use my backup file to restore my customised YAPS settings (saved from 158) to the current YAPS builds.

@flyingdutchman yes, ids should be “stable” for preferences to be compatible. I would suggest using that previous stable ids file and manually editing out any possible duplications from it or other issues. 
I will also try to avoid dependency on stable ids for the next PA builds, if that is possible.
