Image from an earlier discussion:
I try to setup FormZ to maximize the modeling window at a 16:9 ratio. Since we are typically rendering at this ratio, it just makes the most sense to have the modeling window at that size.
That means the palette dock sidebar creates a right border, which ends up leaving a bunch of dead space at the bottom. I really like having the materials palette down there (I had it this way in v5 and v6 as well). As a designer, having my color palette SPREAD out in front of me helps it feel more inspiring, like a painters palette. It still leaves some dead space around that should be better utilized (I'll save that for another thread), but this is as close as I can customize FormZ.
With this layout, the Material Palette will snap to the palette dock sidebar. You can save the workspace, and restart FormZ. Upon restart, the Material Palette moves away from its previous position. So do other palettes if you have them open, and 'snapped' to the Palette dock sidebar. Material Parameters, Display Options, etc, will all move away from the Palette Dock they were snapped to the edge of, upon restart. It seems like a minor thing, but it is extremely annoying to have to move the palettes daily despite having them setup originally where you want them.
The Palette Dock sidebars height is also changing by itself. I'll drag it to just maximize with the screen height, but then upon restart, it'll shrink back up to a new shorter, un maximized height. I notice this especially after a FormZ crash and restart.
