QR Codes Persistence

[ New ]

Is it correct that QR codes created with the QR Control Customizer are persistent only during the current powered on session?  In other words, it's necessary to scan customized QR codes each time you power on your device.

Depends on what you want to do, but generally yes, the current mode is temporary.  Currently it doesn't change the preset that is your current mode, or save the QR Code changes into that preset, that will likely be improved in the future.  Other setttings like GPS on/off, Voice control, QuikCapture are set and saved.  So your preferences are saved, not your video/photo mode changes.  This was by design, but is not what the user was expecting.

So interestingly i have found that if i set up a delayed start, then every subsequent power on it will have remembered this mode.

 

A further note to this, that if you then scan another QR code - it will recognise the code, however it wont action this code - it stays with its previous QR setting.  The only way for it to accept a new code is to press the side POWER / MODE button to cancel this current mode during the boot up sequence. - then rescan your new QR code.

The delayed start is clever, it re-sets the mode after the camera wakes, each time.
