Hello.

Thank you for adding the 'lock layout' option under Layout (1) in Preferences (hope something similar comes up for column headers in the future :) ).

However, when I resize Musicbee, the panels reset to another size. This is especially unfortunate when accidentally resizing the window.

As an example, I have album art in the right main panel taking up half the screen. MB resizes layout when the window isn't maximized. However, when I re-maximize MB, original layout is forgotten and panel is back to about 1/4 its size.

Is this a bug or should I try something else?

I made a gif to illustrate what's going on. Now I implicitly understand the option found in Layout (1) to fix the layout is probably intented to help avoid unintended dragging by the user.

Is there a way for MB to remember layout when its no longer maximized or is that more complicated than it sounds?

I decided to try a completely new install and I noticed the behaviour went away, MB wouldn't adjust panel width anymore as in the clip (up to a certain point but it would default to a maximum width roughly half the screen).

I'll eventually try to recreate and reapply all my settings on the new install. If I notice the issue again, I'll update this thread and try to pinpoint what's triggering it. That could take a while though.
