Remember separate window

Emmanuel,

Computer screens tend to get bigger and bigger. The original layout of the SH3D screen made sense when the average monitor was 14-15 inch.
Nowadays you see 22 and 24 inch screens and many people even have two screens.
A few years ago, the option "Display in separate window" was introduced. Today this option is equally useful when using only one screen. The extra width of the larger screen can be used to display the 3D preview in a window next to the 2D preview, allowing more space for 2D and 3D.
Unfortunately, on exiting the program, SH3D forgets this layout.

Would it be possible to remember the screen layout, including a separate window for the 3D preview?

Re: Remember separate window

This should be the case, except when you open a sh3d file on an other computer with a smaller screen, or with less screens that wouldn't be able to show the separate window.
Doesn't it work with this test file?

Re: Remember separate window

Emmanuel,

It worked with your test file, opening it with v4.6.

Then I made a test file in v4.6 with split windows and saved it.
I closed and restarted SH3D v4.6 and re-opened the test file.
The file opened in one single window.

So, maybe it works under Windows, but not under Ubuntu?

Re: Remember separate window

I can't confirm this.
I use Debian 8 jessie with 24' monitor and my SH3D 5 b4 (adapted to run like installed version) remember the separate window for Test file and also for a new one created.
So, I don't think that is a problem of SH3D.
