Many thanks for that… it doesn’t help with the issue I’m afraid. I’ve just done a bit more digging and found that the proxy settings are cached in the docker for mac application database at:
which is a git repository. If I edit the proxy settings in the files in the proxy directory in this database:
then commit the changes the docker app reloads itself and picks up the changes and propogates them into new containers. So it looks like what is needed is some way on the DfM preferences panel to ask it to reload what is held in this setting repo from the system preferences.
If there is somewhere I can log this as an issue then let me know, but I presume this needs to go on to the docker for mac stack which isn’t on github…
