Feature Request: Save tab layouts
« on: March 08, 2015, 03:46:11 am »

We can currently save views, column headers and other stuff...

One thing we cannot currently do, that would be very helpful, is to save/load TAB layouts...

Depending on what I'm doing in MC I usually have a set of tabs I always like to have open, in a specific order...

But then if the work changes, I often need a different set of tabs open.  It can be quite a bit of work opening/closing/locating views for the tabs.

Would be extremely useful if we could save/load tab sets...

If you are adding this, please make it a per split view option, and not a global "all tabs" option.
It would be useful to have a preset group of tabs that I can load up in any split.
Saving and restoring the state of all tabs across all split views would be a nuisance.

Next build:
NEW: Added View > Load / Save View to save and load a set of tabs (experimental -- may not remain).

It's experimental because it's a little complicated how all the parameters for the view are saved and I'm not positive it's going to work.  I think so, but I need a little wiggle room.

Hello. how did this go? Is it working?
What I would like to have is when starting JRiver I would like to have the same tabs as last time I used JRiver. I sometimes open 7-8 tabs and jump between them when playing. So that would be very helpful. Thanks.

The feature works.  You access it through View > Load / Save View.  Use Save after you lay out your tabs (and splits)the way you want them.  Give it a name.  Then you can use Load later to bring back that set of tabs.

Yeap, thanks, it works fine.
However, it would be even more easy if I could save all settings when closing JRiver. I mean not actually save but it would be nice if I can chose to start JRiver with previous settings if I like to. I mean tabs and maybe also others for example volume tracknumber if playing from a playlist so that the songs continues in the list and don´t start from the beginning when starting JRiver. Just an idea to make JRiver even better.
