Android Question Private key settings stay populated with new project


I see that the Private Key settings fields stay populated with info from a previous project.
Should that not be empty when starting a new project? and be filled again when the correct project is opened?
I noticed it at the point I wanted to do a small test with debug via B4a Bridge.

I recommend you to use a single key for all projects. The only reason to use a different key is if you are building a project for someone else.
In that case use the #SignKey... attributes to set a project specific key.

* another reason to use a different key is if you have an old key for old projects and it doesn't meet the Google requirements for new apps.

It identifies you as the developer. Later updates can only be done with the same key.
Thank you, I understand that. I thought I've read on Google that each project should have it's own key. Well that's how I've been doing it before starting with b4x.
Because when you create a key, you mention the name of the app in the created keystore.
But if one key for a single developer or customer(who knows in the future) is good, then I'm of course ok with that. It simplifies stuff.
