  Evince does not save settings at all

Status in “evince” package in Ubuntu:

Bug description:
  Using evince version 3.10.3 on Ubuntu 14.04.  Tried every way I could
  think to change the default settings to remove the sidebar and set
  default view to fit-width.

  1. Used dconf Editor to ensure show-sidebar and show-toolbar was deselected and sizing-mode was set to fit-width (see attached screenshot).
  2. Created a new PDF file.  I opened the file and saw that the sidebar was still there and sizing was fit-page.
  3. I corrected the view and used Save Current Settings As Default to save the settings
  4. Used File -> Close to close the file
  5. Opened the file in Evince again and the sidebar was still there and sizing was still fit-page.  I would have attached a second screenshot but the website doesn't allow more than one.

  I have scanned the internet for this bug, but most responses were for
  much older versions and/or claimed to be resolved, though I couldn't
  find an explanation of how they were resolved.  The closest thing I
  could find was a complaint about viewing size being saved at 80%
  instead of 100%.
