Hi effacer.

I can only find a "Save preferences" option under File. And when i click it is gives me a purple warningbox down right which reads: "Warning: Not all preferences were saved. See Script Editor for details." And it doesn't save my settings. I have the Maya 2009 unlimited edition.

They are both toggled on. The "Save all preferences and settings when maya exits" and "Save script editor contents when maya exits"

But it doesn't save.

try deleting the preference folder under :

C:\Users\(username)\Documents\maya\(MayaVersion)

close Maya and try deleting all these folders. Now start Maya again. This might help.
