Basic Tool Pallet and Tool Set Bar always resizing


Since 2018 - every time I open the program the basic tool pallet and the Tool set pallet are always resized to the minimum even after I save new pallet positions. Is there a way to keep these pallets how I want them displayed? This has never been an issue before...

This is likely nothing you are doing wrong, there is an active bug being tracked related to palettes not maintaining their docked position. Adding this thread to the case.

This used to happen for me consistently in 2016 and 2017, though 2018 has actually been better for me, thankfully.

Ah, perfect timing - I just saw your posts above.

I experience a slightly different problem with the tool pallets.


When enlarging a floating tool palette for example the Object Info Palette or Visualisation Palette which are resized to the minimum with a "-" / minus to it, they:


      A - don't accept the change to "+" / Plus to enlarge 

      B - once enlarged they don't accept the change to "-" / Minus to resize


Only when clicking on these for a minimum of 2-3 times they tend to respond. 


Also at times some tool palette kind of 'disappear'.

Meaning for example the Attribute Palette is sitting in the dock but is EMPTY.


So I have to restart the VW program and it shows up again.


Any ideas if this is riding on the same bug you mentioned ?

Forgot to mention that when you try to resize a tool palette and it shows the '-' / Minus, it still sits there as if it had no change to it and won't bounce up.
