Hello Marco,

I do not really understand the question. What exactly are you unable to do? You cannot find the option in the settings dialog (in the English version, it is "Track recently used" on the "Behavior" tab)? You cannot change the option there? You can change it but it has no effect (you need to restart the application for it to take effect as indicated by the tool tip)? You can enable it but the menu stays empty?

Best regards, Adam.

Hi Adam,

I can change the checkbox but it has no effect even after restarting the application.
I don't see any "OK" button on the dialog, so I presume that closing it shoud save my changes,
but after restarting I don see any item on the File menu for last recent files.

Hello again,

I think the settings is not applied as there definitely should be some buttons on this dialog. Maybe your screen resolution is small enough to hide the bottom part of the dialog? Did you try holding the Alt modifier and dragging the dialog window around?

Best regards, Adam.
