Description gholmer 2011-03-16 17:36:18 UTC
It would be nice to have the positions and sizes of the various windows (navigator, output, &c.) restored from previous version when importing settings at install time.
Comment 1 Antonin Nebuzelsky 2011-03-17 10:04:47 UTC
I believe there are good reasons for not importing the persisted Window System state.

Reassigning to Standa for more details.
Comment 2 Jiri Kovalsky 2011-03-17 12:08:11 UTC
Yes, I second this requirement.
Comment 3 Michel Graciano 2011-03-24 14:44:49 UTC
The problem about this is that the TopComponents are serializable during IDE sessions and copy this is not trivial. I have requested it years ago and that was the answer, maybe it could change in the future? I will try to find my old issue, but no lucky until now.

Take a look at 141369 and 140875. The last one was asked by gholmer too :)
