Remember bottom panel height on each tool

I like to work with one of the following windows visible on the bottom panel:

  • The Problems (Alt+6), I like to keep it very small and keep an eye on any entry appearing in there as I edit the code
  • The Git (Alt+9), I like to keep it very large, because it includes the diff and I don't need to look at the code editors while using this tool
  • The Debug (Alt+5), I like to keep it half size, because while debugging I want to see both editors on the top and debug tools on the bottom

I find myself dragging the top bar of the bottom panel up and down every time I switch tool. I make it small when I press Alt+6, I make it large when I press Alt+9, I make it halfway when I press Alt+5.

Is it possible to have each tool remember its own height, and have the bottom panel resized every time I change tool, without requiring me to manually resize it?

I have the feeling that this used to be the default behavior, either in Rider or in PyCharm, but I may be wrong.


Hello, Stefano Menci. Could you please check if enabling the Remember size for each toolwindow option in the Settings | Appearance & Behavior | Appearance helps? 



Yes, that's exactly what I was looking for!


Thank you for the update; I'm glad it helped. 

Please let me know if you have any other questions or requests.
