I have this same problem. In version 4.16r2 the tree would remain expanded
after the control panel was closed and re-opened, but only if a project was
'open' (marked with green dot). This is the behaviour described in the
previous post. In version 5.11.0 control panel /always/ opens with the
directory tree collapsed, whether a project is open or not (if a project
was open, it is still marked with green dot, but not visible until the tree
has been manually expanded to this level).
If this behaviour is not configureable, then it is definitely either a bug
or a backwards step. It's getting quite annoying clicking through the whole
directory structure every time I want to open a file.
Can anyone suggest a solution?
