Window positions

Would love to see window positions saved with MPTM, even for Multiview. It could also be used for other track formats if saved in something like a "trackshistory.ini" file.

This feature would mostly be helpful for using multiview (more than one window for the same song), as currently MPT will not remember these window positions, only that it was not last closed in full screen mode.

Closing this as it has been suggested before.

Please provide a link, Jojo. I used the Search function (which i always do before posting), and did a cursory search thru all the open requests and couldn't find it.

I don't know where it was exactly, it had something to do with MPTM, though. I think it's more important that the devs know that an identical feature request already exists, because we have to keep track of it. :) And I'm lazy.

Doesn't sound very convincing ;) Opened the request until there's a better reason to close it.

As a start, plugin editor positions are now remembered in the module file. I'm sure there used to be a separate request for that, but I can't find it...

Multi-window positions and contents are now also remembered.
The mechanism for plugin editor positions has been moved to the new SongSettings.ini together with the new window positions stuff, so the old settings are not read anymore.

Well, it is a file. It contains saved window positions. What else should I say about it?
