Cease and Persist

New releases and general discussions.

Could we get an option in the preferences to disable saving of the .persist files? I don't ever change my UI layout, so there's no need for .persist files to be cluttering up everything.

It's a nice idea and I like that it encourages organizing projects into folders, but yeah...

Sounds fine, but you guys should really organise your projects into folders if they're causing extra files to be messy ;).

Persist files don't just save the state of the UI, they save which layouts/event sheets you had open when you last used the .cap. If you turn them off, .caps will only ever load the layout editor for the first layout, which can be annoying.

Well I do exactly that, when I'm working on a project.

But I also do a lot of one-off experiments and testing of other people's .caps for troubleshooting purposes, so things get messy enough as it is :P

Don't get me wrong, it's a nice feature and when I get back into regular development on a project I'll be using it, but most of the time I just don't need it.
