RawTherapee 5.9 not saving edits

Yikes, all of a sudden, RT isn’t saving my edits. I just lost an hour’s worth of work. Luckily, I have a pp3 file backed up so I can recover most of it. I’m looking for some suggestions as to where I can begin looking to troubleshoot this problem. TIA. I have an important project to finish up.

Make sure your pp3 load and save settings are compatible with your workflow. Mixing the save and load locations between cache and next to the image can make things tricky. For example, if you have a pp3 saved next to the image and you have the preferences set to save to cache and prefer loading from the pp3 next to the file, RawTherapee will save your edits to the cache but load the pp3 which does not contain the most recent edits.

If I’m interpreting this correctly, the pp3 that I load (the saved one) is in a different folder than the ones that get stored and loaded next to the RAW files. Taking a quick peek at the pp3 next to the RAW file, it says it was modified at the time I closed the program.

Oh wait…here’s the culprit:

This needs to be changed to “Profile next to the input file.”

Thanks for the response.

Yep, that looks like the issue. Your edits were hiding in the pp3.
