Cannot change server

I think it would be good to have a button "Change Connection" or "Ignore" so you can enter the user interface to select a different connection.

Thank you for the feedback. We always welcome suggestions to enhance our products. I have logged an enhancement request on your behalf to add a 'Change Connection' button to the P4V dialog for failed server connection. I have added your contact details to the report. Should it be included in a future release you will receive a notification email.
Did you connect via the 'Open Connection' window; and is the 'Show dialog at startup' check-box enabled? Do you have any other 'Connections' setup?

I disabled the start up connection dialogue in the past as the connection was set up and working.

To get things going you might try editing ~/Library/Preferences/com.perforce.p4v/ApplicationSettings.xml and change the LastConnection setting to something legitimate.

It seems you can actually choose the 'Ignore' option in this dialog by pressing escape. This will then open the normal 'Open Connection' dialog.

I ran into the problem today. I had to change (0 vs 1) <Int varName="ConnectionstartOption">1</Int> in ApplicationSettings.xml to get the connection dialog to show again.
Since I'm on linux the file is in ~/.p4qt/ApplicationSettings.xml
