swift - How to force reload preference plist for an app in OS X? - Stack Overflow
The reason is, from Mac OS Mavericks, apple started to cache plist files, which results in replacing a plist file manually has no effect until the cache is reloaded automatically. If you open the application which uses this plist file to early, it overwrites your copied file with the old/cached one.

To reload the preference file manually, use
<code class="language-bash">defaults read <filename>.plist</code>

to read the new plist values.

Now, I just use a sh script to call the defaults after executing my program.
