Is there a solution to get the docking panels sticking in their places between sessions ?
I asked this so many times since rh5 and I really don’t understand why I still have to struggle with that.
Any development ?
Before exiting rhino (single instance)
Yep, I know, I think this is on the pile to get some attention in V8. @JohnM - is that correct?
Yes, the old system of saving/restoring has been completely scrapped and I’m in the process of putting together a completely new system that should be much more reliable.
This is good news.
Does that mean that until V8 there is no way of saving panel states…?
Hi Sven -
There won’t be a new way of dealing with panel states in Rhino 7.
As for Rhino 8, all this new stuff is still work-in-progress…
Every week I download new build hoping this issue is solved. It is utterly annoying to reconfigure my panels every time I start new Rhino session.
John, for God’s sake, don’t make it more reliable, make it fully working!
Yes, come on guys, I fully agree. There should be a way to save your default panel state, at least.
This system is getting completely replaced in version 8 and should be far more robust and reliable.
Have you done somethig recently to improve Panel docking? If so, thanks a lot.
The self-resetting is gone, at least for a couple of days for both V7 and WiP.
Hi Piotr -
Any changes in this department will only apply to Rhino 8 so anything that you see different in Rhino 7 would just be a coincidence…
One further request on ‘reliable / bullet-proof’ panel states:
How about … UI Config FILES?!
This would be similar to the display mode files. You could save the entire UI / panels & locations / toolbars / preferences / colors / layers / etc and then quickly load everything from one single and beautiful config file.
Think of all the time this would save … and the joy it would bring to sweet Rhino customers everywhere. I’m getting emotional just thinking about it.
Feel free to follow up and tell me why it’s impossible.
