How can we improve InDesign?

Have InDesign remember the size of its application window from last time used

Have InDesign remember the size of its application window from when it was last used and have it open in that same size the next time used. Illustrator and Photoshop already do this...

    If there really are so many people that want InDesign to forget its position and size, that want InDesign to open full screen no matter what, then make it a UI option in Preferences.

    I am one of all these people that wants InDesign to remember its position and size.

    It seems that this should be a fairly simple thing to implement. None of the other CC programs have this problem, and it adds "adjust to correct size and position" an extra unnecessary step for the user every time InDesign opens.

    If every other program can do it, why not InDesign? All the forums I've found on the subject have had people asking for this feature for at least 6 years. One post back from someone at Adobe basically said, "that's the way it works"! Not very useful.

    BUG! I've posted about this before, and it never gets fixed. It's a nuisance every time I start InDesign. It takes over 99% of the Windows desktop -- only 99% because it thinks it has RESTORED the user-adjustable window size. FULLSCREEN is indeed full screen, but RESTORED is always 99% of full screen. This is a required feature of all Windows programs, and not having it wastes a lot of time.

    This bug has persisted for many versions, with 1 or with 2 monitors, and it's long overdue for a fix.

    The window size reopens all weird every time. I set my inDesign window to span across two monitors (the second having a few panels) and it is extremely frustrating.

    Yes...a million times, YES! Sure that's a bit of over enthusiasm, however I am OCD and this would go a long way to maintaining my sanity.
