Custom Settings Provider does not save edited values

Settings Window


Reproduction steps:
1. Open the user's attached project
2. Open Edit > Project Settings > MyCustomSettingsProvider
3. Change one of the fields
4. Close and open Unity Editor
5. Open Edit > Project Settings > MyCustomSettingsProvider

Expected result: Changes have been saved
Actual result: Changes didn't save

Reproduced with: 2019.4.35f1, 2020.3.27f1, 2021.2.9f1, 2022.1.0b5
Could not test with: 2022.2.0a2 ("The name 'Unsafe' does not exist in the current context")

  1. Resolution Note (2022.2.X):

    The issue is in the user code. In fact, you should create a C# Script with the same name as your custom settings class. In this case, you should create a separate C# script, MyCustomSettings.cs, for your MyCustomSettings class. In other words, your DearImGuiSettings.cs script should only contain your MyCustomSettingsProvider class. Once that is done, you should reinitialize your MyCustomSettings.asset by deleting it in your Project browser and reactivating it by clicking on your custom settings page in the Project Settings window.
