    ...go to Edit > General Preferences, under the first tab that appears (document) you'll see a box that gives the option to 'Launch To Preferred State', and 'Launch To Factory State' and then a button below that says "Set Preferred State".

    The Document tab only covers the preferred scene that is loaded when Poser starts (and various other document related settings). It does not have any impact on user interface preferences.

    Set your UI and library preferences how you want and then click the Set Preferred State button. Make sure 'Launch To Preferred State' is checked, then restart poser.

    On the Interface tab, yes. You want Launch to previous state there, and not Launch to factory state.

    Ah ok, interesting. I thought that it stores the UI layout as well, since my layout and library settings stay the same from one session to the next until I change it. Apparently "previous state" seems to be on by default in interface as I don't remember ever changing it.



  • I've found that since I updated to the second version of SR4 (11.0.4.32600) that came out just after the original SR4 (11.0.4.32467), my library doesn't always remember the settings either. It's an erratic behaviour, not every time, it's weird.



  • So after doing some changes, deletions and moving.. and evils eyes at the monitor..

    I copied over the LibraryState.xml files before, during and after a Poser11 pro session and can clearly see that the file is being newly written, re-written, created etc.. so that would suggest its not a 'permissions' problem..

    however, this ONE line isn't consistent with anything that is showing in the Poser library or with what I'm doing.. <treeImageSize>91 will change to <treeImageSize>25..

    My PREF is that it shows 91 not 25 but no matter what I do, all I get is the 25 size, regardless of what the xml file shows.. So everytime I load up Poser11 pro, I have to go into the library and manually change every time.. (yes I know.. not a huge task but come on.. really?) and then chase the library when I click on one folder and the list shoots up to the top forcing me to go back down the list and find the folder I had been wanting in the first place.. gees.

    However, the search function works great! yay?

    Any thoughts?

    <ContentLibraryPrefs version="1"><listImageSize>80</listImageSize><showTree>true</showTree><showItemList>false</showItemList><showBreadcrumbs>false</showBreadcrumbs><showExtDetails>false</showExtDetails><itemListAsGrid>true</itemListAsGrid><treeImageSize>91</treeImageSize><treeSelectedImageSize>100</treeSelectedImageSize><treeIndent>6</treeIndent><treeReopenFolders>false</treeReopenFolders><showFolderCounts>true</showFolderCounts>

    Hah. I never use only the tree, so I never noticed this. But I'm on SR 5 (beta) and it does it there, too. I set the tree Thumbnail Size to 91 and the Selected Thumbnail Size to 91 and exited. Upon restart, they were once more 25 and 100.

    I never noticed because I use the library in wide layout, on a second monitor, with the items shown in the grid list, not the tree.



  • I can confirm the bug.
    Looks like loading of previous value fails, so library takes default value instead.



  • Bug is being looked at.
    A fix was proposed, but we have yet to confirm the fix doesn't introduce some negative side-effects.



  • So basically, this isn't anything new.. it's just been there.. since.. when? Since Poser11 Pro rolled out?!

    Can anyone else confirm if their library also does the jump to the top when selecting items in the tree? I have a long list of items in my library.. so when I scroll to the bottom of that list, and when I attempt to open a folder or select an item, the library shoots to the top and I have to rescroll down to the bottom..

    NE1 have an ideas to when a fix might be in the making?

    Now I'm wondering if my problems with Octane and RedSpecSSS are also attributed to a faulty Poser11 Pro internal faults.. doomed to fail from the beginning?!

    Cheers

    Scroll-to-top in list-view has been fixed in 32770 build. Should be available on following beta.

    For thumbnail size bugs, only after fix has been confirmed as safe, fix will be included in public build. I believe a colleague will evaluate it soon.

    I use Octane v3 and redspec with Poser Pro 11 all the time and both are working fine.
    What problem do you have with them?



  • Excellent, looking forward to it.

    Cheers

    Its most likely not a related problem, more likely trying to sort out how to make it work properly.. I keep getting the oddest and poor results in renders. I'm looking for some one on one learning time with someone knowledgeable who can walk me through some things with it..

    Cheers
