Remember opened tabs and solution explorer folders

Answered

Hi

 

I started using Rider yesterday after using VS for a long time. One thing I love with VS is how I can continue working what I started, my opened tabs remain on top, in solution explorer folders remain opened...

 

In Rider, though, everything always starts fresh from the start, like I didn't do anything before. Is there a checkbox to check so it remembers my session? I already found how to automatically open last solution when starting Rider, I just need these options to fulfill my transition to this awesome IDE.

Edit: Looks like it remembers tabs, but still not solution folders...

Regards,

Matko

i think you misunderstand the question, it's not about the layout of the Explorer but the tree structure inside the Explorer.

1. this is the tree structure when i last open Rider:

2. then i close Rider

3. i open Rider again and this is what i got:

what i would expect is the same tree structure as on point 1 when i re-open Rider

Markus, 

I apologise for the misunderstanding. Unfortunately, there is an issue with the solution explorer tree. Please, feel free to upvote and follow RIDER-5094

Thank you for your patience!

the suggested solution doesn't work.

steps to reproduce:

  1. opening solution with multiple projects
  2. open projects
  3. open directory tree
  4. then choose:  Window | Store Current Layout as default
  5. close Rider (2019.3)
  6. re-open Rider

current behavior: Rider started with Explorer in collapse all tree (i have to redo the steps 2 - 3 manually)

expected behavior: Rider remembers the last Explorer solution-project-directory tree state

 

PS: PHPStorm does remember the last opened Explorer tree state, why Rider have different behavior?

Hi Markus! 

Here is one step missed: could you please try Window - Restore Default Layout after step 6? 

If this won't help, please try the following: 

  1. Disable settings synchronisation (if enabled) and quit IDE
  2. Remove "config" directory (or temporarily move it aside to restore your settings afterwards): see the section corresponding to your operating system in https://intellij-support.jetbrains.com/hc/en-us/articles/206544519
  3. Start IDE (do not import settings) and check if the problem appears

Hi Matko, 

thank you for contacting us. 

Please, try after setting solution files, tabs and windows as you want, choose Window | Store Current Layout as default and reopen Rider to check the result. 
Hope this helps! Leе me know if you have any other questions.
