No ASL Preferences OS 3.9 does not support saving MUI ASL Preferences, they also save the configuration file "asl.prefs" in different paths.

Can you list which path is used by which Preference tool and give me example files for each of the preference tool (use identical settings in both please)?

About the settings, sorry they are the same, I had been fooled by a file saved in the presets

As you can see from the Screenshot, I made a save with Asl.Preferences OS 3.9, then I ran MUI ASL.Preferences which did not detect it the file in the path ENV:SYS/asl.prefs

Also tried manually loading the asl.prefs file, see screenshot and the file "asl.prefs" was not recognized

Ok, so OS3.9 ASL preferences and MUI ASL preferences both save files in ENC:SYS/asl.prefs, but those files are different and not compatible, correct?

Can you share asl.prefs file saved by OS 3.9 ASL preference and asl.prefs file saved by MUI ASL preferences?

Thanks! Can you also make me a screen shot of the settings in each of the Prefs programs that equal to these preferences files?

Also, which one is more popular among OS3 users - the OS3.9 ASL prefs or the MUI ASL prefs?

Another questions: you didn't find Prefs progam on MorphOS, but is there file ENV:SYS/asl.prefs? If yes, can you also send it to me?

Saved values are default, now I set maximum window values, yes now I look up asl.prefs on MOS.

MOS for configurations uses a unique GUI in the style of Dopu Magellan but more like that of Scalos

Those with OS 3.5/3.9 and the newer 3.1.4/3.2/3.21 use "Asl Preferences" included in the system, those using 3.0/3.1 do not have asl.preference in the system and therefore must necessarily use the MUI version of Aminet.

Consider that those using 3.0/3.1 do not usually have expanded Amigas so they use little MUI MUI

In the screenshot you can see the new ASL Preferences of OS 3.1.4/3.2/3.2.1 (updated systems of OS 3.1)

Ugh, the OS 3.2.1 preferences look different than the OS 3.9 preferences... So are there now 3 different preferences programs for ASL?

Can you also share asl.prefs from OS 3.2.1 Prefs program?

Yes, OS 3.1.4 started as an update for OS 3.1 and they added some Apps in the system like ASL Preferences.
Partial Reaction GUI support was added with 3.2/3.21, but not compatible with that of OS 3.9

System Apps from OS 3.9 will not work on 3.2/3.21 and vice versa

I now also save asl.prefs from OS 3.2.1

If it may be of interest riguardio ReqToos you find these preferences tools:

I attach 3 saves of asl.prefs from OS 3.9, OS 3.2.1 and MUI ASL

On MOS there is no "asl.prefs" save, as mentioned for Preferences it uses Ambient similar to Dopus Magellan and Scalos (see screenshot), so I would have to figure out by which name and in which path it saves the ASL setting, which I presume is integrated inside MUI.

Thanks. At least it looks like the preferences files in OS 3.9 and OS 3.2.1 are the same format.

I will need some more examples of asl.prefs files from OS 3.21. Can you first make me screen shots which show what options are available in Position and Size drop down lists?

Thanks. What are other options in "Size" than "Default" and "Relative"?
