This is not strictly a bug, but it has bothered me for years.  I use a lot of user tools containing texts I get from project gutenburg, and I edit them quite often––using bold for highlighting, changing font colors, etc.

 

My issue is: whenever I save an edit in the user tool editing window, Accordance automatically collapes all the headers in the sidebar.  So if I'm reading Josephus (I’ve pasted his complete works into one tool), and I’ve clicked the little arrows so that the certain subheaders are listed which I want to see, but then I edit some text, the whole sidebar collapses.  I have to go to the click all the little arrows and scrolls to find my sub-headers.  This is extremely annoying, and it wastes a lot of time.  Could this be changed?  I doubt there are people out there who would be diappointed if Accordance stopped doing this.

 

Similarly, it would be wonderful if Accordance kept the same subheaders open when saving and reopening a window.

I agree this can be a frustration, sorry about that!  This shouldn't be too hard to do, but the one tricky thing is what to do if you've added or removed a section, that may affect what happens when it is reloaded.  What would probably happen is that the open sections would be close, but perhaps slightly off depending on if a title were added or removed.

Thanks so much for the reply –– I hadn’t thought about how the possibility of changed section tags would mean that it wouldn’t necessarily be a trivial programming issue.  I’ll hope maybe a change might get worked into a future update.
