1) Hide some of the sidebar buttons (e.g. Gallery, Navigator)
2) Hide the sidebar using the View menu
3) Reopen the sidebar using the View menu. Its layout is reset and the buttons are visible again -- yet I think the setting should be remembered.

Also, the sidebar doesn’t remember the last active section. When I select e.g. Styles and formatting, hide the sidebar and show it again, it is set to the direct formatting tab.

(I know I could use just the sidebar buttons to hide most of it, but for me it’s better to hide it completely to have more screen space for the document.)

Thanks, can confirm this

Strangely the query https://bugs.freedesktop.org/buglist.cgi?list_id=509160&product=LibreOffice&query_format=advanced&short_desc=side%20bar%20remember&short_desc_type=allwordssubstr  doesn't show a similar report..

Maybe it's in here https://bugs.freedesktop.org/show_bug.cgi?id=65138 but hard to tell without looking at them all ..

It is a question if the sidebar buttons should be customizable at all: E.g. the user hides the 'Gallery' button, closes the sidebar using the 'View' menu and then open the gallery using the 'View' menu...

If the buttons layout were to be remembered, the gallery should logically show without its appropriate button... which is questionable.
