Any way to set the Default Back to Save and Not Cancel?
It can be a pain when you make a change and press the Enter Key and yet your changes never happen.

Yes. Merge pull request #2585 into the source code in time for the next client release.

This behavior is occurring on about one in ten of my clients. I'm wondering if there might be some sort of workaround until the next release presumably fixes it? It's really the inconsistency that's the problem for me, if they were all like that, I'd adapt quicker.

There was a change made in the Manager released alongside client version 7.10.2: that change is continued into the Manager released with client 7.12.1

Anything older than that (like 7.8.3 and before) will work the old way. There will only be inconsistencies if you update different machines at different times.

Thank you for setting this back to Save as the Default in Version 7.14.2

Our pleasure :-)

But it's more subtle than that. Cancel will be the default for people who haven't saved anything before: Save will be the default for people who've already got something saved.
