For troubleshooting strange behavior, I need to reset the application's plist. How can I do so?
The application's preference list file (the plist) is a document that's updated on-the-fly with the current state of the application; everything from window sizes to the current Next Capture Naming format is stored in the plist. It is named 'com.phaseone.captureone##', where ## is the application version number. It resides in ~/Library/Preferences/.
To reset it to it's baseline, "vanilla" state, openTerminal (/Applications/Utilities/Terminal.app). You'll get a blank prompt:
Copy and paste the following:
defaults delete com.phaseone.captureone12
If you're running version 11, it would be:
defaults delete com.phaseone.captureone11
and so forth.
then press Enter.
There won't be a confirmation that it's completed, though if something goes wrong it will notify you. This will clear out the basic application cache and return Capture One to a “vanilla” state- all your custom settings, recipes, etc will remain, however they will be reset back to the defaults. To re-enable them, simply choose them from the applicable menu.
