Yep it just failed for me upon restart of nvdas and restart of my computer. I tested with 2 profiles, and  it fails in each of trhose as well. Everything else gets saved upon exit.

Some times it fails  for what ever reason.

and in my case, I have to do it manually.

I just checked, the box is in fact checked, so yes something is amiss here.  Hopefully, whatever happened will fix itself. I could have sworn I did uncheck the insert thing months ago. I never had to use insert on my 6 pack until recently. Anyway, I’ll have to test with other keys.

This sounds to me like the box in general settings to save configuration on exit isn't checked.

If it isn't, and they weren't saved intentionally by the user before exiting, they're gone.  (That needs to be emphasized because one can save them manually, but you must do so if that box is unchecked.  [It is checked by default if NVDA is in it's "fresh install default state."])
