by something like 4 to 1. The developers were ask at the time they "gave
in" to the desires of the majority if the "create new document on closing
the last document" would be the default behavior and said it would. What
we got was an ability to edit a profile which is not even close to what was
promised. We were told this was a simple, trivial change. Why isn't it
fully implemented then?
It was my mistake, it is implemented as Dom said, I was just editing the
wrong place in the Abiword.Profile config file. It works as promised,
just as a hidden feature.
