The Book panel does not remember its size and location
The Book panel is the only panel in InDesign that doesn't remember its size and position when you close and re-open it.
Steps to reproduce:
- Create a new book (File > New > Book). The book panel is shown at the centre of the screen. No need to add documents to it.
- Move the panel to another location on the screen, and change its size in the usual way (click-drag on a corner of the panel).
- Save the book and close it.
- Re-open the book.
Expected behaviour: the book panel is opened at the same location and at the same size as when you closed it.
Actual behaviour: the book panel is opened at the centre of the screen at the size it was when you created it.
Book panel is a special type of panel that is always associated with the .INDB file – unlike other panels where there is no actual association with a file on disk. The panel also shows the name of the Book file. If that INDB file is deleted, then the panel does not have any meaning.
Only when the Book file is opened is the Book panel available. So it can’t be part of a workspace & thus its size and location also can’t be fixed as there could be multiple Book files that can be opened simultaneously.
This is SO frustrating to me. Why can't they fix this?
