Session: Store view position per duplicate document tab

Post by Timur Born » Tue Jan 07, 2020 12:53 pm

Hello.

I often use duplicate tabs of the same document to keep different sections of the same document accessibly. Unfortunately the session manager does not store the last view position of the duplicate tabs, but opens them all at the same position. Is there any option I can change to fix this?

Thanks.

Hello Timur,

Currently it is not possible, as the "last viewed" data is a single value per document, even if multiple instances of a document is opened, only one value can be stored. I am unsure if this is something that we can change, but we will look into it.

Kind regards,

Hi again Timur,

It appears that I misspoke, we actually do have this functionality already and it is specific to the session manager, Simply setup your Session settings like mine here, ensuring that "keep current position" is checked, and "use history to restore last" is unchecked:

With these options in place, a single document can have multiple positions saved in a session!
