Creating new monitor profiles

For the life of me I can't figure out how to create a second monitor profile - seems like there's a bug. After creating my first profile, I no longer get the flyout menu (as shown at https://www.displayfusion.com/Discussions/View/working-with-displayfusion-monitor-profiles/?ID=5f41fdbd-bb4f-4052-8de2-a34e47468ec0) when pressing "Save Profile..." and it instead it goes straight to asking if I want to overwrite the existing profile. This means I never get the "New Profile" option like I should.

Does anyone know if there's another way to create new profiles? Is there a config file somewhere that these are saved in?

I found the profiles in the registry at HKEY_USERS\S-1-5-21-3389849328-3111932096-555468319-1001\Software\Binary Fortress Software\DisplayFusion\MonitorProfiles\. Duplicating the first profile in here allowed me to get to the 3 profiles I wanted which I could then edit. Inconvenient, but it works if anyone else runs into this.

You need to change the settings and apply them first, then you can save it as a new profile

I'm going to look into adding that info to the overwrite dialog to make it more clear for the future.

Thanks!

Why not always give us the choice to create a new profile or overwrite an existing, despite if any settings were changed?

For example, I wanted to duplicate my current monitor profile with just a change to the audio device. I had to change an unused settings like 'monitor fading' to make the 'new profile' option appear. I then create the new profile and adjusted it as needed. Then I have to go back and make sure 'monitor fading' is disabled for each profile and save them again.

It will be very helpfull to duplicate current monitor profile when I want to make more configuration with small changes. Especially when W10 change monitor order... Now I can't make another profile with the same monitor configuration.
