AbiWord: DefaultSaveFormat=".rtf" not working

Hi, I wanted to apply a default format saving options to portable abiwords. I have been informed to use the following trick:
//
You can go edit your
AbiWord.Profile file and add the
following line to the _custom_ scheme

DefaultSaveFormat=".rtf"

where .rtf is the
common extension of the format you want.
//

I did, but every time I lauch portable abiwords, the abiword.profile file seem to be restored ? May you help me getting this tweak to work ? I suggest to include the info in the next readme if it possible. Indeed, many people would like to set the default save format.

Thank for any inputs

Make sure that you're

Make sure that you're editing the AbiWord.Profile file while AbiWord is closed. Also, be sure to place that DefaultSaveFormat line in the <Scheme name="_custom_" section rather than the <Select scheme="_custom_" section of the profile.
