RSS Remember/reopen tabs


In addition to (auto saving RSS tabs) it would be great if RSS remembered which tabs were open and would reopen them when restarting RSS. In addition, unnamed tabs should also be stored automatically in some "work area".

Now I created files tab1, tab2, tab3, ... which get saved but which I need to reopen manually each time which is annoying.

Just look at how Notepad++ handles this as an example.

Kind regards,

    The CAAC has reviewed this IBM Idea and recommends that IBM view this as a medium priority Idea that should be addressed.​

    This would be a huge time saver if run SQL scripts would remember which scripts we had open and would auto open them for us. Perhaps this can be a user preference setting.

    Background: The COMMON Americas Advisory Council (CAAC) members have a broad range of experience in working with small and medium-sized IBM i customers. CAAC has a key role in working with IBM i development to help assess the value and impact of individual IBM Ideas on the broader IBM i community and has therefore reviewed your Idea. ​

    The comparison to Notepad++ is interesting - I turned off saving what was open, but that's because I have no need for it.

    So I suggest a preference setting for this.
