OS X App Preferences Do Not Save.

Every time I open the Todoist app (Version 3.1 (122)), my removal of the keyboard shortcut (Cmd-Shift-T) is not saved and I have to remove it again.

To reproduce:
- Open Todoist app
- Open preferences
- Press "delete" button next to the "Show/Hide Todoist" shortcut.
- Quit Todoist app
- Open Todoist app
- Notice keyboard shortcut is back

Let me know if you need any other information! Thanks for being awesome.

Hi Colin,

Please try logging out of the app, clearing the cache for Safari, and logging back into the app. After doing so, change the setting and let me know if it continues to not remember.

I just did the following:
- Opened Todoist app
- logged out
- Closed todoist app
- Opened Safari
- Emptied cache
- Closed Safari
- Opened Todoist app
- Logged in
- Removed keyboard shortcut
- Closed Todoist app
- Opened Todoist app

And keyboard shortcut was back again!

Hello Colin,

Please tell me - if you set a different keyboard shortcut, is it remembered correctly when you reopen the app? Please click on the shortcut field and then press some unusual key combination that you won't accidentally press such as Ctrl+Cmd+Shift+\ and let us know if it gets saved permanently.

Best regards,

Yup! Saving a different keyboard shortcut works and is remembered!

Thank you for the confirmation. I have passed the issue regarding the unsuccessful deletion of the shortcuts to the developers. For now, as a workaround, please set them to some complicated key combinations.

Best regards,
