  1. open a write window
  2. change position and resize the window, then quit YAM and start again

  • Milestone set to YAM 2.9p1
  • Resolution set to invalid
  • Status changed from new to closed

With YAM 2.9 we added a new possibility to directly configure within the YAM configuration if the window settings including the folder list and message list layout should be automatically saved upon exit of YAM. You can find this Option under Configuration -> Startup/Quit -> Save user interface layout (which is enabled per default).
The reason behind that option was, that we wanted to have a functionality to save the window position as well as the folder and message list layouts of the main window automatically when exiting YAM. In fact, we believe that is what most users actually want -> save the last state when leaving YAM.

Of course this option somehow interferes with the MUI own setting to define that the window position of a certain application should be automatically remembered or abandoned when exiting. So if you want to have the old behavior of MUI itself explicitly taking care of that you have to disable this option. But please keep in mind that you then always have to manually use the "MUI Snapshot" feature accessible through the drag bar of the main YAM window.
