I have a workaround that uses base64 to pass the string through the addon. It lets you choose the objects but still doesn't show the correct object name in the menu.

I was able to replicate this, but inconsistently. Can anyone confirm if this is a blender issue or something addons need to handle themselves. If it's the addon then how do I fix it?, because I do not know what's causing this.

I adjusted the settings and changed the name of some presets:
("Weeping Willow.py" to replace "Willow.py")
Ok, looks good.
Just 1 little change 'Fast Preview' should be in the animation panel.

hi, I've tested your version and heres what I found.
Armatures and pruning still do not work in 2.76 or 2.77.
I don't think there is any change to attractup.
I like armature and animation in separate panels, I was starting to get too crowded.
I think the prune settings should be after branch growth and before leaves, because pruning is applied to the branches, then leaves and armature are applied to the resulting tree.

I added an option to overwrite the file. It still uses os.path.exists though, because with the option to overwrite it doesn't make sense to use open(...,'x'), and it has to check that its not in the builtin presets.

Here is my solution.
user presets are saved to:
os.path.join(bpy.utils.script_path_user(), 'presets', 'operator', 'add_curve_sapling_3')

So the problem is that windows will not write to the application folder?
Is the solution to write the preset somewhere else, or to just prevent saving if it does not work?

Armatures are limited in a few ways:
1, doesn't work with with auto curve handles or intersecting branches because of bone envelopes.
2, doesn't work with pruning, this should be fixable

Oh!, I didn't realize I zipped the whole thing, sorry, yea that stuff wasn't supposed to be there.
hi, I don't know what the best way to do the paths is. It may depend on where its installed. So if someone knows the right way, it can be changed.
