Skin Saturn: comments not stored [solved]

The comments in Saturn are not stored and do not appear with the slides.

Jalbum-version 23.1 -java 14, 64 bit
Saturn-version 49.0.0

Spielmops

Found it:

Within the project-folder there is a hidden folder ".jalbum", which contains the comment-file "comments.properties". Why is the folder hidden?

I updated yesterday Jalbum from 11.x to 23.1 and was used to see all files in the projekt-folder.

Between jAlbum 11 and the current version, the location of some control files was changed, to keep them separate from the image files.

jAlbum does not hide the .jalbum folder - Windows automatically hides all folders whose names start with "dot." Folders like that are hidden because a user should not be making manual changes to them.

jAlbum does not hide the .jalbum folder
I didn't say, that it is Jabum, that hides the folder. The folder is hidden, because either the skin or Jalbum creates folders with a dot in front.
The location hasn't changed: the files are still in the project-folder, but some are in this hidden folder.
If the intention is to hide the files so that the user does not edit them, then why is the "jalbum-settings.jap" file not hidden, which really should not be edited. But it makes work easier if you edit the "commments.properties" file directly.
