Description pinggi 2012-06-02 14:03:03 UTC
How to reproduce:

1. Create GTK# project
2. Open Main.cs and User Interface -> MainWindow.cs
3. In the 'Properties' tab, open the 'Windows Properties' category and change 'Border Width' property to 1.
4. Go to the 'Main.cs' file (by clicking the Main.cs tab)
5. Now you make some changes and realize that you want the border to be thicker.
5. So you go back to the 'MainWindow.cs' file (by clicking the MainWindow.cs tab)
6. You can see that all categories were closed in the Properties tab and you need to find 'Border Width' property again by opening the 'Windows Properties' category and changing 'Border Width' property to 2.

It is annoying to open the categories all the time and to find the last focused property. I would say that the Properties content is disposed when the layout changes and it shouldn't be. It's like the position of the text cursor would be reset to 0 when you switch between tabs in the text editor.
