Footprint Library Browser, save windows and panel size/width

Or is this already possible? I found no obvious way. Only idea would be using some OS setting or tool…

Usually, I pull the window wider and larger to be able to read everything, but every time I close the Windows and open it back up again it resets to it’s default settings.

size and position of the footprint library browser window is already saved (at least on windows 10), the width of the 3 columns not. If you want this feature for next christmas/birthday party: you need to register at gitlab and write a good description. use the command Kicad–>Help–>Report Bug, this will automatically open a correct gitlab-template (including the correct version-information). You can also mention the symbol-library-browser which already saves/restores not only the window size+position but also the actual column-width.


The weird thing is, that it remembers the dimensions now. No idea why now and not before, though. It waited until I prepared an issue.
