RC1 is lazy in saving appearance to config. I noticed, because it always started with default window size. Maximizing was not carried over, also the panels were consistently reset.

Only when eg. dragging the handle to change cad-toolbar width not from preferences it would write an “appearance” section to the config file.

The appearance section should be written rather sooner than later.

This task depends upon

Apearance (window size, position, panels, etc.) are saved on exit. Could it be that QCAD did not terminate properly (e.g. crash or Ctrl-C in terminal)?

I often "quit" from the terminal so it may well be, that this was it, as this will produce such a short config.file. Not doing so in fact includes appearance. so please close.

Because you mention that, I want to tell, crashes have been very rare from tp1 on and disappeared at all in more recent versions.
