Unable save UI customization in Rhino 6 trial

Rhino version: 6 SR23
OS: Windows 10 Pro

I’ve modified my workspace - relocated panels, setup toolbars, etc. however, the UI is reset after closing and reopening Rhino each time (1 instance of Rhino open and closed). Is this a function of the trial version (I have a licensed version of Rhino 5 at work, and any modifications described above are automatically saved when I close Rhino and are reinstated when opening Rhino afterwards). Thanks for any help.

Hello - I would expect that to work as in V5 - are you running as a user with Administrator privileges?

Does this file exist-



My user account is an administrator and I do have the settings-Scheme_Default.xml at the specified location.

I just noticed that some modifications are saved but not all. For example, the toolbars that I opened and located are opened each time, however, while these toolbars are displayed each time I open Rhino, they are not located where I specified them. The settings-scheme_default.xml file is being written to with each closing, so it doesn’t seem to be an issue with access to the file to write the changed settings.

Hello - please try this, assuming you typically run Rhino maximized on your monitor:

  • Restore (‘un-maximize’) Rhino and adjust its size by hand to be as nearly maximized as possible.
  • Arrange your stuff.
  • Maximize Rhino

Close and reopen - any better?


You assumed correct! I tried the steps specified, but no difference - UI is mostly reset.

Not sure what happened, but this morning Rhino UI open to the last saved settings that I had yesterday when I saved. However, while the UI saved settings is working as it should, there is an unexplained lag in the UI. Every action, whether it’s switching view ports, clicking icons, accessing menues, lags several seconds after each mouse click. The only thing I can think of is to uninstall and reinstall again. Any suggestions would help. Thanks.


Please run the SystemInfo command in Rhino and copy/paste the results here.


Hi. Thanks for the update. New update for you; about an hour ago, the lag has stopped and everything seems to be working normally. See below for system info.

Hello - please try disabling VRay in Options > Plug-ins page, and then close and restart Rhino. Does that make any difference?


No change. But, as I mentioned before your post today, there was some unexplained improvement to the UI saving settings today - the tool panels and tool bars settings are mostly being retained - the only thing that’s not quite correct is that the toolbar positions are shifting each time Rhino is opened.

Can you try the routine I outlined a few posts up again, now that things are maybe a little better-behaved?


Tried - no difference. Given that the only issue left is the toolbars being re-positioned, I’ll maybe learn to live with it for the rest of the trial period - at that point hopefully I’ll be back at our office and can go back to Rhino 5. Thanks for your help!
