I have thought of something else. When I did the remote upgrade, I picked the generic host install msi file that I downloaded from the Beta page. Could that be the reason for the settings to be erased - because I didn't customize the msi installer first?
Certainly, not. Quite the contrary - if you use the "vanilla" Host during upgrade, the Host settings should be intact.
I assumed that the upgrade would re-use the existing config from the Host I was upgrading.
The only setting that sometimes causes issues in apps for me is the custom scale factor I have set (175%).
Thanks for letting us know. Yes, scaling might cause this issue, although I've just set 175% scaling and I still have a 1-row toolbar, but there could be other factors in effect.
We will test this further and see if we can reproduce the issue, although I'm not sure if we can provide any fix. Program windows and their standard controls - especially their size/fonts are mostly governed by the operating system rather than the application itself. So it's the OS that dictates how windows and controls look like and behave.
This frequently causes windows and dialog boxes to have shifted or cut off text or buttons in apps that do not account for the scaling. I know I'm a unique case in this regard.
No problem! We may not test the program at all scaling values or resolutions (that would significantly complicate the testing process and slow down development) but at least we have a chance to receive reports right away from real users like yourself.
