OS X remember window size and location (v19 fixes window size, placement still unfixed)
#1
Question 
Currently: Kodi 17.6 does not remember window size and location.

Expected: As other apps on macOS this should be possible and be the default to remember the size and location of the window.

Not sure if this issue is limited on macOS.

EDIT: minor - should this subforum be renamed to "macOS" now that the thing is no longer called "Mac OS X"?

Are you using the macos fullscreen mode (green „+“ button in the upper left window) by any chance?
It should remember window size and position when using Kodi internal window/fullscreen switch.

Sorry, only now saw your reply. I am not sure I understand the question. If I click the green button (or use keyboard shortcut shift + cmd + f, which should probably be ctrl + cmd + f) I am in fullscreen. There's no position to be remembered. Click green button again and I am back in windowed mode. In that mode when I close kodi and re-open, the window position is always the middle of the screen. The request is about kodi remembering the last window position, which seems to be what most other apps do on macOS.

The feature request in regards to fullscreen is to remember that state as well. So whichever state kodi is closed in, that should be the state it is opened in after being closed.

If I misunderstood your question, please elaborate so I can properly answer it.

2019-11-10 edit: 18.4 the issue remains.
On 19a1 2019-11-09 the behavior has improved. It seems Kodi now remembers window size, which is awesome. Kodi does not yet remember position. So if I want to keep kodi in the top right quarter of my screen when restarting Kodi, it now remembers window size, but the window is always placed in the center of the screen.

It would be awesome if Kodi also remembered it's location / placement on the screen.
