MiPro 2019 explorer doesn't remember position of dividing lines

  • 1.  MiPro 2019 explorer doesn't remember position of dividing lines

    Hi,

    while using MiPro 2019 and now 2019.1 i find it quite anoying, that every second time when i open MiPro, the Explorer window just forgets about its parts.

    It then just looks like this empty window


    after resetting the explorer hights in the options it again looks like this


    But it looses this setting quite often, sometimes even while working with the program, and it is really, really anoying.
    I had complains about this behaviour even from customer side.
    Is there anything you can do about this?

    thanks and regards
    Stefan

    Hi Stefan,

    Do you have the remember section heights preference set?

    Hi Andrei,

    just did this. After the second time starting MiPro 2019.1 the Explorer was empty again, - like the first screenshot in the first post.
    So that doesn't change a thing, - do you have more ideas?

    Thanks and
    regards
    Stefan

    Hi,

    any news about this annoying issue?
    Today i startet MiPro and it looked like this


    that doesn't look remotely like the situation when i closed MiPro.
    This is 2019.1.

    Regards
    S.H.

    Hello people
    I experienced the same about 8 months ago, then again 4 months ago. In both instances, the problems were due to my local profile. It takes a techo about 5 minutes to clean up the local profile.

    For a while, I had MapInfo Pro setup to save the Ribbon State and the Tool Window Position on Exit. After I while I did, however, experience that I didn't always leave my Tool windows where I'd prefer to have them placed. This meant that as the positions were saved on exit, the position of my windows changed.

    I decided to change my approach. Now I only load the configuration files on startup. If I want to change the position of my Tool windows and save the changes I made to my ribbons, I explicitly tell MapInfo Pro to save these using the Save Current State or Save Current Position options in the Application Preference dialog.

    This process has helped me quite a few times over the years as I can always restart MapInfo Pro to get my windows back to my favorite position in case I have moved them around.

    I know this doesn't really explain the weird behavior that you are seeing, Stefan. But consider this as a possible workaround.

    Hi,

    are there any updates on this weired behaviour that's still present in 2019.2?
    It's annoying having to reset Explorer window state roundabout every 10 clicks in the GUI, or having to adjust the whole unser interface to be able to work (see my post from the 9th of may) after program startup.

    Thanks
    and regards

    Stefan
