Maya Mel UI Configuration File Issue


When maya file is saved , maya will write viewport settings in “Maya Mel UI Configuration File” section in maya file(.ma file). “Maya Mel UI Configuration File” section will help maya to load scene file as is on file saved state.
Ex: “Maya Mel UI Configuration File” stores whether bounding box is on or off.

How can we disable to not save “Maya Mel UI Configuration File” settings, because one of my file haven’t saved.


in the preferences interface -> UI Elements -> when saving: save panel layouts with file and when opening: restore saved layouts from file.

I would definitely suggest to everybody to untick these two options, most of the time it will cause more troubles then anything.


Thanks Onouris, its working fine.
