Actually I can. When I look into ~/Library/Preferences I see possible culprit --
there are two plist files: org.lyx.LyX-2.3.plist and second org.lyx.lyx.plist.
It seems that one of them is used when lyx is launched from icon and the second
when you click on some .lyx file.
Robert, if you click on some .lyx file and set VC Toolbar , then quit and again
click on .lyx file then the setting persists. Correct?
