@andy & @pascal, thank you both for your replies.
There are two issues here. One the loading of third party panels and the second remembering where I put them.
Rhino - for the most part Rhino remembers my layout on startup with the only panels I have docked being layers and notes both on the left. A crash can change this…but usually it is a TDM product that causes the crash
Rhinogold - no matter what I do RG loads 4 panels on the left side of Rhino on startup. I only want two and I want them on the right. It never remembers what panels I have out or where I place them.
Clayoo - remembers that I wanted it mains panel on the right side and does not load any others unless I want it to.
TDM make both Clayoo and Rhinogold. Why does RG behave one way and Clayoo the other? Why can TDM get Clayoo to behave one way and then tell me that they cannot get Rg to behave the same way? Pictures of my panel layout are above.
The reason this is important for me is that the left side panels are ones that I want to be able to see most of the time. The ones on the right are ones that push themselves to the front when you activate one of their commands. I let them toggle amongst themselves.
If they were on the left side they would push forward and obscure the layers or notes panel which I do not want to have to manually click back to the front after I run a Clayoo or RG command.
Kind of defeats the purpose of the command line if every time you run a command you have to manually reshow the layers panel. It also seems a little annoying that every time you start an app you have to manually reset your workspace,
Does that clarify? Any help would be appreciated.
