  1. 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:


    1. 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.

    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.
