Window Positioning

stacks save their position and size into themselves when you save them, be it via the save menu or by any other means. Stacks that are a standalone can't save themselves. Other programs use  setting files or the registry to save their window size and positioning between launches.

Note that the IDE might reposition your stacks, depending on the windowboundingrect which excludes the IDE's menubar, iconbar and the tools palette from the available places for stacks.

If I drag a stack window to a different location on the screen, close it, then open it again, it is displayed at its original position, not the one I dragged it to so it seems like it's my responsibility to record the window location in those circumstances if I want it to open at the same location next time around.
