It's been at least a year since I posted about this the first time, but there has been no resolution since. My problem is with the custom aliases resetting after logging a character out.

So, I have characters that have an assortment of once-off or 'obsolete' custom text aliases that I want to get rid of and then I want to load a 'current' list of aliases universal to all of my characters. I cannot get the changed alias list to stick. This is obviously not a game-breaker but my OCD would be sated if I can get the changes to stick.


Here's a quick example of what happens when using a few generic custom aliases, with a custom1.layout file in the proper loc on the hard drive:

example custom1.layout aliases:
;drink /drink raises his mug and takes a drink.
;p /point ;t
;reg /regional
;trade /trade [text]

example sequence:
type >> /alias list
output >>
;t target
;loc location

type >> /ui layout load custom1
output >>
confirmation of loaded aliases

type >> /alias list
output >>
;t target
;loc location
;drink /drink raises his mug and takes a drink.
;p /point ;t
;reg /regional
;trade /trade [text]
(WAI at this point)

type >> /alias clearlist
output >>
confirmation of cleared aliases

type >> /alias list
output >>
;t target
;loc location
(still WAI)

action >> log off

action >> log back on with same character

type >> /alias list
output >>
;t target
;loc location
;drink /drink raises his mug and takes a drink.
;p /point ;t
;reg /regional
;trade /trade [text]
(this is the part that's not WAI)
