Stumbled on a user (https://twitter.com/dangillmor/status/561613904237715456) who wanted to have documents default web layout over print layout and the solutions available on ask libreoffice ( http://ask.libreoffice.org/en/question/1835/changing-the-default-layout/ ) are to write a macro or create a new template with web layout set in it.
I think both solutions are bandages and not real solutions and this feature should be selectable in Tools > Options > LibreOffice Writer > View.
Component is ux-advise, so
Status -> NEW
We're replacing our use of the 'ux-advise' component with a keyword:
Component -> LibreOffice
Add Keyword: needsUXEval
Good idea. Though being not a fan of too many option we should rather store the last view setting. So once the web preview is enabled it would be restored at the next session.

Saving the last view into the user profile, when that is saved as document-level setting isnt a good idea in my view because you couldnt retain the setting across various documents you may open. Users want to be able to set that all newly created documents be opened in a particular view.
@Cor, @Regina, @Stuart: Whats your take?

Talking about session level so not depending on a document but account.
Per document the last edited "view" is remembered.
What is not now possible now is to force the GUI into one of the view modes on launch--in this case Print vs. Web
And for this--the control needs to go somewhere Tools -> Options -> [module] -> View makes the most sense, with the setting recorded per module to each users "registrymodifications.xcu"
IMHO this as orthogonal to additional work needed to resolve bug 75644, not only as to size and placement of the module's window--but also its view mode.
Caolán got things started with
which gave us framework and got us partway on the Sidebar for bug 67770
And now similar is going to be needed for recording customization of all the MUFFIN assemblages.
