A.2.14 I am no longer able to save popup defaults

Magit used to use Magit-Popup to implement the transient popup menus. Now it used Transient instead, which is Magit-Popup’s successor.

In the older Magit-Popup menus, it was possible to save user settings (e.g. setting the gpg signing key for commits) by using C-c C-c in the popup buffer. This would dismiss the popup, but save the settings as the defaults for future popups.

When switching to Transient menus, this functionality is now available via C-x C-s instead; the C-x prefix has other options as well when using Transient, which will be displayed when it is typed. See for more details.
