Since this is the most recent active thread on Parrot I could find, and my question is options related, I'll post it here:
The 1.8.0 says
The profile now defaults to your Character-profile instead of "Default". Try switching profiles to regain all saved settings.
but, when I try to switch back to the Default profile, the "Copy From" only shows individual character profiles, not the Default or the class profile. Sure, I'm nerdy enough to just edit the .lua file to assign all characters to the Default profile (and maybe rename it, so that new characters can choose it, too) but I wanted to mention it anyway. There's probably a lot of people that just used the Default profile for various chars, for reasons of consistence.
