Hi, please,

JOSM is not saving the heights (and widths) of right side pannels. It never worked for me, for any JOSM versions, even if fully re-installed. I suspect it happens with Windows, becasue I know fellows that use Linux and usually have their pannels saved (but I can't dismiss Windows-v7).

For GUI it saves OK last values:

gui.geometry    x=-8,y=-8,width=1296,height=1010
gui.maximized   true

But not for the right side pannel:

validator.geometry         x=481,y=403,width=661,height=235

Moreover, not availlable (just empty) for:


For any value I set for those, yes it saves, but does not work when opening new session:
they always open with the same default heights, that is, with too much height for "validator" (used only in the end of session) and too short for "properties" (used constantly).
Even though the values still are there as they were personally set by me.

So I have to manually drag down the pannels again every new session... since 5 years...

So, How to save personal adjusts of heights (and widths) for right side pannels?(in Windows)
Thank you in advance.

I see it has since had the old 'closed as a duplicate of something we can't be bothered to fix' treatment.

Maybe if "they can't be bothered to fix it" you could have a go?

I'm interested to know if those settings were ever savable in JOSM. Photoshop has a feature called Workspaces that will allow one to save any number of panel configurations. It would be wonderful if JOSM had that feature.
