while i was trying to publish a single custom made palette on Mac, i’ve have found some things which did not work as expected or which i do not understand:
I go to
Rhino 7 / Preferences / Commandsto make a duplicate of the Default Command set and name it eg. “MyCustomCommandSet”

Library/Preferences folder there is only the entry for:
but no file for “MyCustomCommandSet”. Is it possible for other users to selectively import the single modified palette from my plist using
