Komodo IDE keeps forgetting my pane placement

Komodo IDE keeps forgetting my pane placement. For example, I like to have the Code tab in my left pane, so I move it there. There are left-pane tabs I don’t want to see so I move them to the right pane to get rid of them by minimizing the right pane (I cannot find a menu item that will simply let me hide a given tab).

So after going through all this effort to place the left/right pane tabs where I want them, if Komodo subsequently exits abnormally due to a system shutdown or crash, it reverts to the default pane placements. Shouldn’t my pane placements be in a configuration file where it can remember them?

This has been a persistent problem in version 9 and 10 and I keep hoping for a fix. I could not find an related issue ticket in the GitHub, although there is one related to remembering tab order.

Many months ago I submitted this problem directly to support (for an early 9.x version) and they said there was already a ticket for it, but I could not find it.

https://github.com/Komodo/KomodoEdit/issues/184 this one.
https://github.com/Komodo/KomodoEdit/issues/1341 this one.

Those two issues are addressing the ordering of tabs within a pane. My issue is that it forgets which panes I have moved tabs to.

That’s kind of tab ordering as well. You can file a bug for it if you want to address your issue more directly :slight_smile:

Since you think the current issue tickets will address my concern, I will just monitor progress on those. P.S. Thank you for your prompt response!

Hi Rob,

This will be fix in the next release:
