"Undo buffers can take up a lot of virtual memory. You can adjust the number of undo steps (and associated memory buffers) in the mina preferences dialog. Reducing the # of undos can help quite a bit if you are running into memory allocation issues."

Updates?

 Studio Artist is a fantastic piece of software- by far best in class. However, it has not really been updated in years, particularly for the Win 10 environment. This is unusual for the software world.  It is conspicuous that queries on this forum regarding updates generally go unanswered.  It is my fear that Studio Artist  is/will become become a "dead" product. I am sure many on this forum would greatly appreciate a "sign of life", that development is going on an updates will be coming. Yes…See More

Where Are Favorites Stored?

  I had prior problem with disappearance of a Favorites category I created. When all else failed, I uninstalled Studio Artist 5 (running on Win 10) and then reinstalled it. After running it a few times, my lost Favorites category  (called My_Favorites_0517) reappeared!I would like to back up these favorites but cannot find them in any folder on my computer.I am baffled and do not understand where Studio Artist stores these or how they could spontaneously reappear after an uninstall/reinstall.

Problems With Favorites in Win 10

 Studio Artist is a fantastic piece of software ! I am using Studio Artist 5 "framework 4.5.1". However, "Favorites" no longer works. Gradually, some presets disappeared from "My Favorites". Then, a 2nd Favorite folder that I had created completely disappeared. Now, I cannot create additional Favorites folders or add presets to the existing one. Furthermore,even if I directly move a preset into the existing Favorites folder using Windows File Explorer, it is not seen on the preset menu for that…See More
