One of the few things I love about the new interface is that you can customize your display using one of the "View Options" presets and changing it to meet your needs.

I was able to save several custom views. Problem is, every time I boot up a new client, my display reverts to the "None" preset.

Further, every time I start new client, the "View Options" window, the "Undo" window, and the Small Molecule design window all appear on the extreme edge of the display, with most of the windows off screen. I move these where I want them... but they always move themselves back to the edge of the display the next time I open a client.

What do I need to do to make this game understand that when I change a setting, I want it stay that way?

Hi there! Thank you very much for the feedback. It seems like there is an issue with the preset and window positioning save state. We will take a look at both of these issues and see what can be done to address them.

Bumping this thread, since I still have to re-set my View Options every time I boot up a new client.

The window positioning problem seems to have been addressed, but not the saving of settings.

Thanks for the report! This is definitely a bug, and we're looking into it.
