Re: Preserving window layout (follow up)

Thanks for all the suggestions. I found a really helpful function that I'm surprised nobody mentioned, though: set-window-dedicated-p prevents Emacs from messing with a particular window. I wound up writing a small function that sets up my windows as described, calls this function for the shell window, and then calls the window-configuration-to-register function that Johan mentioned. Seems to work pretty well.

Thanks again,
Matt

Sort of a poor man's IDE. The problem is, when I do something like

Another approach

,----[ C-h k C-x r w ]
| C-x r w runs the command window-configuration-to-register

| Store the window configuration of the selected frame in register REGISTER.
| Use C-x r j to restore the configuration.
| Argument is a character, naming the register.

You might want to bind those to some nice keys.
