Yeah, seems I don't understand wink... because there's only one vertical bar that's controlled by QMC2 (or Qt), and that "splitter" has nothing to do with the template's internal positioning / sizing of its own widgets. There's no such splitter on the right side...

could you get qmc2 to remember the centre bar position for each tab?

Ah, that's a completely different story... well, the "software-detail widget" reuses the space that's otherwise used by the logs etc. If the space is not sufficient, you can "undock" the widget so it's an independent window and freely resizable!

It's already a complex thing to switch between both "views", taking into account if the widget is docked or not etc... but it should be possible to also save/restore the splitter's relative sizes in both situations (when the widget is docked).

This one :



With this cursor, you can move this splitter. He wants that it is stored by tab.

yes and this is the problem. if I have moved the centre bar all the way down there is nothing to undock

so the suggestion was could qmc2 remember the 'notes','software list' widget size independently of each tab

and have this as an option (on/off)

Yeah, I meanwhile understand, partially smile!

Undock the widget once and it will stay undocked, regardless of the splitter's position. I can also change the splitter's position based on if the software-detail widget is shown or hidden, but it's simply not feasible to save/restore it based on which tab is currently active (*).

(*) EDIT: that's not because it's impossible but because of the main widget's complexity.

Also, just in case you haven't noticed this yet, you can also change both splitter's orientations and swap the widgets/sub-layouts they "split"! See wiki.

I'm just telling you this because things might look different/unexpected when the orientation is flipped and the position is restored in the way you want it!

well when I use qmc2 I have it set to the 'Notes' tab and I browse the systems with the Machine list

now I have no need to see the 'emulator log','front end log' when doing this so I move the widgets separator all the way down so I can see as much as the 'notes' as possible

So I find a system I wish to try and go to the 'software list' tab to see if there is any games

now when I highlight a game , I know it shows up in the 'software notes' tab but this has been hidden by me so I now have to move the separator up to see this widget.

I do this all the time so was wondering if the widget windows could remember there sizes when moving between them.

undocking is not something I do.

is it just me that does this?
