Thanks for the further input Pieter . I just had a chat with one of my colleagues from Ui / Ux itself, and for now, I really cannot give you any further definite statements when it comes to this subject. But, it is filed internally with all the Feedback we have gathered so far from the Forum, so your voice or that of the others is not lost at all, which I can guarantee.
From this point on it's very likely a subject that will be tackled in the not-so-distant future, but how this will be adjusted I cannot say yet. It may be possible to adjust a setting in the future to disable the automatic saving of settings, or we'll find another solution entirely to satisfy as many users as possible.
I also promise that you'll be basically one of the first in this Forum to know when anything changes and once I'll have more news to share when it comes to this specific inquiry.
In the meantime, I truly do hope that this isn't causing too much frustration in your day-to-day workflows or that of your users. I'll keep you posted.
