2018.3 Settings reset every program start

After the 2018.3 update, my theme settings seem to have been wiped out. It always starts in Darcula. If I change it, it stays for the session, but on next restart, it is back to Darcula.

I have my old settings saved to a file, this file used to work, but now when I import it nothing changes. I get Darcula. I can only change appearance manually, and only temporarily.

I even uninstalled and reinstalled Webstorm, and nothing helps.

Do you have any custom plugins installed? Please provide your idea.log (https://intellij-support.jetbrains.com/hc/en-us/articles/207241085-Locating-IDE-log-files) - please don't paste its content here, upload it to some file server and provide a link

I do have Material Theme installed. It has given me some problems. I suspect it is the culprit.

Please try disabling this plugin - does the issue persist?

What theme is changed - IDE or editor? Please see https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-202248 - does it look similar?

That issue sounds like EXACTLY what's happening to me.

 

I will start tracking that issue. You may close this thread.

 

Thank you Elena!

Same for me, it started with 2019.2 I think and persists on 2019.3. I have it installed via toolbox and I'm on ubuntu 19.10.

https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/IDEA-202248 is fixed in 2019.1, so your problem must be different.

Are you using Material Theme UI plugin? If yes, does disabling it make things any better?

I think it is different, because it was all the settings (not only the theme). I've noticed I don't have `~/.IntelliJIdea2019.3` on disk (nor `.IntelliJIdea2019.2`, but only like 4 earlier versions). I've nuked idea from the toolbox and reinstalled. It seem alright now and `~/.IntelliJIdea2019.3` was created. I think I'm good. Maybe there was a bug in upgrader or toolbox some time back. Sorry, don't have anything to help debug it.
