Unable to set hidden preference DisplayGroupsInPreviewPane

I’m trying to turn on the DisplayGroupsInPreviewPane hidden preference. With DT3 shut down, I entered the following in Terminal:

defaults write com.devontechnologies.think3 DisplayGroupsInPreviewPane -bool TRUE

followed by Return. After the Terminal prompt returned, I restarted DT3 but there appears to be no change: I select a Group or a Smart Group in the item list but nothing appears in the View/Edit pane. Am I missing some crucial step in this procedure?

Running El Capitan.

You’re missing a hyphen.
It’s com.devon-technologies.think3

Aha! That did it. Thank you, Bluefrog.

I had copied and pasted the first part of the command from the “sample” in the manual just to make sure I didn’t make a typo. Turns out that pasting the text (into Terminal or a BBEdit text document) strips out the hyphen, probably because it’s at the end of a line. So much for “smart” copy-paste algorithms.

You’re welcome :slight_smile:
