Hi devs,
when I work on LO I usually need to move through the numerous chapters of the book and I like make use of the sidebar selecting the "Navigator" tab, then expanding the "Headings".

However, when I open LO to work again on my file, I need to redo all the steps because the sidebar is focused by default in the "Properties" tab instead of my last selection, "Navigator" > "Headings".

Is it possible to remember the user's favorite selection of the sidebar in the next work session (not only the first level, the tabs, but also the selections done inside the tab)?

I mean, if the user change the default sidebar view is for a reason, probably for his/her work is better to have in view something different by "Properties", so should be fantastic if LO take a "snapshot" of the user UI before exit and reload that setting in the next session.
What you think about it?
Thank you!
