OK, I understand. It sounds like I should be specific about the
default position where I want each of my windows to appear and then
come up with a scheme for the standalone that saves the position of
each window when it's closed. I already have a scheme in place to
save other settings in an outboard file because of not being able to
save stuff within the standalone so that shouldn't be a big deal.
A lot of this has to do with windows getting hidden behind other
windows. I already have a menu that lists all the currently open
windows so users can easily get to one that is hidden by selecting it
from the menu but I think attempting to avoid that problem by specific
positioning would be a good idea.
