I have several global variable configuration set, for example : default, set_1, set_2, ...
When I open codeblocks, look at Global Variables... I see, for example that set_1 is Active, the one selected in the scroll-down menu.
I do some work with that set_1, then choose the set_2, clic on the Save button at the bottom, do some work with set_2, always inside codeblocks. Then I close codeblocks.
When I reopen codeblocks, and look at the global variable config, I see it's still set_1 which is selected.
How to make codeblocks to keep my set_2 config as the active set after a restart. I can modify default.conf manually, of course.
I thought that the Save button at the bottom of the global variable configuration display box was for that purpose, but it's not the case apparently.

Looks like swapping these two lines from uservardlgs.cpp:473 should do the trick
Code
    m_UserVarMgr->Save();
    m_UserVarMgr->SetActiveSetName(m_CurrentSetName);
but I cannot check right now

Effectively, with this line switch, it works as I thought it should...
Nevertheless, there is another Save() at line 471, a more global one I suppose. What does it save ?

Fixed in r13524, thank you for testing.

The other Save() just collects the members of the current variable, removing the empty ones.
