Bug#552691: evince-gtk: Does not save configuration

Package: evince-gtk
Version: 2.28.1-1
Severity: normal

Evince does not save its configuration settings. Every time I open a PDF file
with evince I have to choose the settings "best fit", remove the "continuous"
setting, and remove the sidepane by pressing F9.

It would be good if evince would remember these settings.

Best regards
Torquil Sørensen
