This could be as easy as saving coordinates to a text file in the application support or preferences folder, then read that text file upon launch and load them into a Coordinates window or tab.
Exactly what I have done for saving
Try saving a map file... swordedit should relaunch with the camera in the same spot.
I have another suggestion for the UI. Can you make it so that it's like the dock, where you move the cursor to one side and the windows show up? Or you could make a hotkey that toggles the windows into view. Alternatively, a drawer setup like in Preview. (On second thought, I dislike the hotkey idea, because that will just cramp up my hand to use. I also really don't like the drawer, unless the drawer can somehow open over the top of the bottom portion of the window... clearly this takes more thought on my part
Thanks anyway in advance.
So... you move the mouse to the right side of the screen and the panels appear? Simple enough.
I have to prepare MouseWizard 6.0 for release, but Ill do a bit more work on the UI when I am done.

True, but not all of them are editor modes. But I see your point.

Will add the '...'

Where would you suggest adding it? The renderview is always the front layer because of open GL, which is the reason for a separate window. I may be able to add it to the top though.

It's a custom box... Image-views would be crazy lol. Ill decide when I look at it.

I know it is. Unfortunately box select doesn't yet work without full screen. If this was not the case, I would have no issue changing it.
