  • Altium Designer does not remember Panels size ( width )

    Hi all ...

    I like to have panels at left in pop-up Mode.

    So, after select the ones I need, I adjust the width I want for each one to appear with,
    as you can see from this "Components" Panel when mouse hovered .

    Problem is, even if I have Autosave Desktop checked,

    if, after saving all files of the project I'm working with and close Altium Designer,
    next time I open it, although all panels are exactly the same at left vertical column,
    their previous established width ( by me with the mouse ) is gone on mouse hover.
    As you can see, the exact same "Components" Panel is now Altium Panel default width.

    Please note, if I set panels width (again, pop-up mode) and save to a file at

    Preferences - System - View - Desktop - Save Button

    when I load the file, none of the panels have the width I previously set before saving them.

    Obviously, the question is:

    How can we always have each pop-up panel with the width we set with mouse, even after closing and reopen Altium Designer ?

    Lots of thanks in advance

    This could simply be a bug in Altium. The only way to have Altium fix those bugs is to report them to Altium, either through the support teams or online in BugCruch.

        Some time ago I tried to figure out how panels work (organize panels on multiple monitors) and then I gave up. It looks like they still have not improved (fixed) that.
