Overwrite existing configuration files

I work with Automator and DropDMG a lot. My only annoyance I have with DropDMG is the inability to change a configuration file’s settings and overwrite the existing one. Currently, I rename the existing configuration by adding a 1 to it’s name then save the new settings under the old name. This is a bit tedious. To add to the frustration, Automator will crash if you have a configuration file chosen in an action but delete/rename it. This is a weird bug as Automator will crash even if the workflow is not running.

Maybe I’m missing something obvious and you can point me in the right direction.

At present, you can only create new configurations and rename them; you cannot change an existing configuration. I’m working on making configurations directly editable. I’ll look into why Automator is crashing.

DropDMG 3.0 adds the ability to edit configurations and fixes the Automator crash.
