I've noticed this bug when I close Scrivener, then reopen it to continue working on the same project.

In outline mode, I clicked the drop-down menu to the right to un-tick some columns that I didn't want to see (date created, date modified etc...) Basically I customised the display, changed the width of the synopsis column, removed columns I didn't care about - got it just the way I like it. Now, when I close Scrivener and reopen it, two things happen:
1) When I reopen the project, it goes back to where I was - except in Corkboard mode, not Outline
2) All the changes I made to the Outline mode have disappeared - it's back to the default

From the introductory video, I had expected that any tweaks I made to the Outline display would be saved (i.e. it would save my column preferences, even the width etc) - Scrivener does this within the same session. But when I shut down and restart the program, it's back to the defaults, and this is irritating. I also expected that if I left a project viewing a certain folder in outliner mode, that when I restarted Scrivener I'd once again be viewing it in the same mode, but Scrivener seems to be showing a preference for the Corkboard... Any chance the Scrivener could remember what I was viewing, and how? Is this fixable?

I'm loving Scrivener otherwise XD

Mine is doing the exact same thing, and I'd rather it didn't. I want my preferences saved for outline mode. It would also be nice if I could always view my Research in Cork board and my Draft in Outline. Is there a way to save views per Binder?

Ok thanks Amber. Sorry I didn't realise there was already a thread about this!
