* Workspace characteristics

For Wish List Requests that have either (a) been progressed to the Wish List; or (b) been classified as duplicates, or as redundant because the requirement is already satisfied within FH and/or plugins; or (c) closed because it wasn't possible to arrive at a clear specification of the request within 15 months of it being raised.

Workspace characteristics

Post by Karl »

Please add a possibility to save main workspace window view.
I am using FH always with the same view and it is annoying to adjust the view every time when starting .

Karl, are you advising us that you have requested this change via support@family-historian.co.uk, or do you think that this post will do that? And don't forget the info:wish_list|> Wish List, check there is not a similar one already and vote for others that take your fancy too.

There are related Wish List entries, but all refer to specific Windows, somewhat like this posting, whereas a global catch all entry is needed such as:
Preserve all Window Characteristics
"All dimensions including position, height, width, pane size, column widths, pin state, etc., should be preserved indefinitely for all windows. There may need to be an Installation Dimensions button to reset a window to its defaults."

Related Wish List entries:
Ref: 58 "Columns to resize to minimum width required to show all text on double left click"
Ref:101 "Remember Column Layouts Last Used for File" ~ Closed with FH V4
Ref:106 "Work With Data Windows to remember size and location" ~ Closed with FH V6
Ref:210 "Select Record Window to remember size and position" ~ Closed as duplicate of 106
Ref:359 "Property dialog mode to be remembered"
Ref:424 "Field to stay in focus on app switch" ~ Closed with FH V6
Ref:433 "Multimedia Records Window Column Width" ~ Closed as merged with 58

Wish List item Ref 534 Preserve all Workspace and Window Characteristics has been created.
