How to retain display settings [ACT2009]?

New install of ACT2009. I have changed certain default displays by dragging borders. For example, I increased the size of the bottom section of the Contacts page; increased size of Monthly Calendar (reducing # of small calendars on the right from 4 to 2).

 

Yet, when I launch ACT the next time, the changes are lost. How do ensure any display setting changes are retained?

 

Thanks.

The Preferences file may be damaged. Have a look at this article in the Knowledgebase 14618.

Finally had a chance to try your suggestion... didn't work. I make changes, but they don't 'stick'.

 

The most annoying has to do with the calendar size. I don't want 3 or 4 small months to the right; I only want 2. That way, the Monthly calendar is larger.

 

Any other ideas?

Try KB# 14770, if that doesn't work try KB# 22879.  Make sure that you see the getting started wizard when starting ACT! the next time.  If you don't then the preferences didn't really reset.  Once the preferences are reset you shouldn't have any diffulty specifying the number of calendars that you would like.
