[Migrated] Remember "Find & Replace" (and other) window details
Open, Needs TriagePublic


I'd appreciate AWB remembering the size/position of windows such as "Find & Replace" between sessions (and also, if possible, the widths of columns within). I guess it could be something saved along with the other settings..? Hope it's straightforward to implement and sorry if it's already on the to-do list. @Sardanaphalus 01:26, 14 October 2008 (UTC) PS Thanks for the recent upgrade.

I endorse this request. It's a pain to have to manually resize the Find and Replace columns every time I open AWB.

Wholeheartedly agree. Yesterday I went to resize a column after opening AWB again and accidentally clicked on the heading instead of dragging the separator, thus inadvertently sorting the rules (that's an existing feature request) and forcing me to scrap the F&R rules.

I'd need the window/column sizes to be saved in the AWB folder or registry somewhere, not in the main settings file. I keep my settings files on a data stick and use the same files on a big-screen desktop and a small-screen laptop. As an aside, why is the "After fixes" column so wide? I never use it.

I quadruple-endorse this (as the OP at [[WT:AWB/Feature requests]]).
