I don't know what all is used by the application, but I see there are layout-related files both in my /Applications/Maxwell 2 folder, and in my ~/Maxwell folder. There are also some com.nextlimit plist files in ~/Library/Preferences.

If someone could chime in with info on which of these can and should be deleted ?

If this problem isnt resolved by a re-install , there are obviously files hanging around somewhere that need deleting.
There is no un-install with Maxwell (or is there ?) so a list of all files and locations that need cleaning would be great.

You don't have to delete anything to find out, just temporarily move files to some other folder. It can be reasoned that everything outside of /Applications/Maxwell 2 is created dynamically, since installation consists of dragging the Maxwell 2 folder from the DMG into /Applications. So if you move all the files, delete Maxwell 2 from /Applications, and reinstall (it may be necessary to empty the trash and reboot), that should be the same as installing on a machine that's never seen Maxwell at all, assuming there aren't also other files somewhere else.

It's funny that, if I have objects in scene, I can write in these "extended" columns. There's a text box after the dot at the H column, after the lock at the L column and at the M column. I guess it shouldn't be there.

I'm on Windows, by the way.
