    Two puzzles this week I’ve ended up in FUBAR territory. Can’t wait for the Stumper.

    Bit of an odd Penpa question I can’t find an answer for anywhere, but is it possible to change one’s own default user settings so puzzles display as preferred as soon as they’re opened? I was considering trying to record a few solution videos of my own but while it does seem to remember that I want to use the beta streaming layout, it doesn’t seem to remember that I change the display theme to dark mode or resize the grids.

    @David Thanks for the question. I will try to answer in two steps.
    1. Display Size – I believe that the display size varies with the puzzle size, so the author’s choice is given higher priority. The way it works is, Let’s say you open Puzzle A, and change its size, next time you open Puzzle A, it should remember its new size value. However, then you open Puzzle B for the first time, and it will open with the Author’s choice.
    2. Dark Mode – I think currently, the streaming layout choice is saved dynamically, whereas the theme choice (dark mode) is not. I will see to change it in a future update.
