Summary0000059: Slicer3 does not remember its window size from session to session

Slicer3 always opens with the same window size, regardless of what the window has been resized to during the previous session. User expectations for Windows software is that programs should remember their previous window size and restore it when restarted.

A related issue is that the window size that Slicer3 uses on startup is poorly chosen -- the height is always too large and some of the bottom of the window is hidden off screen.

Additional Information

Windows XP, SP2 and all current patches.

TagsNo tags attached.

There is some capability to save session information in the Windows registry and in a dotfile for Linux. Perhaps this information could be added as well.

Regarding the startup Window size -- Slicer3 is best viewed at 1280x1024 resolution. If you are using a lower resolution than that, it could be the cause of the problems you're seeing. It's a known limitation that we are currently trying to fix.

Slicer3 should remember and restore some aspects of its geometry and layout now, like the window size and the layout of 3D and Slice Viewers. There are additional things about its layout (like whether the GUI panel is open, and whether the sliceGUI panel is collapsed) that this fix won't address in every case -- I'll put these modifications off until later.
