When I set the UI layout for any brain that deviates from the standard (Plex left/ Notes right), this layout is maintained the next time I open TheBrain provided that the brain was open when shutting down TheBrain. So far, so good.

This is not the case when opening a closed brain.
  1. Open a closed brain
    > the brain opens by default with Plex on the left and Notes on the right
  2. Click on the symbol to rotate the UI layout clockwise.
    > Plex appears above, Notes below
  3. Close this brain's tab
  4. Open this brain again
    > The default layout appears: Plex on the left, Notes on the right
    Expected behavior: the brain opens with the last UI layout it had before it was closed.

Workaround: If you want to preserve your UI layout for a brain, never close a tab! 😫

(This gets even more interesting in TheBrain10, where you can duplicate tabs. The duplicated tab does preserve the UI layout of the original tab, but opening the same brain in a new tab will always default to the standard layout.)

I wish there was a way to preserve these settings in the brain itself. I've added a considerable section to my main brain explaining how things work, for those who come after me.

Would love to see your explanation of how things work in TheBrain, Ruud!

Any chance you could export some of your notes on this into a sample brain -- without too much extra work on your part?

This would be a great addition to our list of sample brains -- as well a helpful collection of hints and tips while we're waiting on the full UserGuide for TB9/10.

I'd also love to compare it with my own collection of TB9/10 hints and tips. ðŸ˜‰

It's very intermingled with other "how to" information. Would have loved to share it. Maybe down the line.

Hi Underdog,

This is the expected behavior for TheBrain. Closing the application with a Brain tab still open will remember the layout of that tab. Closing individual tabs will not remember the layout.

This is on our feature request list, and I have updated the request with your suggestions.
