Thanks for taking the time to help me out. I've created a couple view-only wallets using https://getmonero.org/knowledge-base/user-guides/view_only , and have been coming across some problems:
1) When I actually do create the wallet that has my cold wallet address associated with it, it saves the wallet name as "WalletAddress:ViewKey:NameIWantToGiveIt", instead of just "NameIWantToGiveIt".
2) When I go to refresh the wallet, it works perfectly; but the problem is, is when I save it by typing "save" and/or "exit" it will save, but then I'll shut it down and turn it back on the next day without being able to access my wallet. It's not a problem with the password, it's that it says that it won't recognize the name and will generate a new one for me even though I put "WalletAddress:ViewKey:NameIWantToGiveIt" for the name.
3) I don't know if this part is mostly my fault; but sometimes in the past when I created the wallet providing the address and viewkey (it would ask me me again for it after I did –generate-from-view-key yourAddress:yourViewKey:nameOfTheViewOnlyWallet) the address associated with the wallet would completely change regardless, as if generating another wallet for itself.
If you guys could give me some pointers as to what I might be doing wrong, please let me know. Thanks
