How do I maintain the source code window layout when I close a project?

Hi, I am using MPLAB X IDE version 5.10 (but the same issue/question exists with every other version I have used). I typically split the source window in half as shown below and keep my header files on the right and my source files on the left, for ease of editing. if ind this works well for me as I can get at everything I need quickly.

Every time I close and re-open a project, however, MPLAB removes the second source window and just shoves them all back into one window:
     [IMAGE DELETED AS IT WON'T LET ME POST OTHERWISE - MPLAB X Source Windows magically reverted to 1.png BELOW]
This is irritating, especially if i have a lot of headers open, as I then have to painstakingly drag them all back into the second window.
 
Is there a way of getting MPLAB to remember this layout? I have noticed in one of the project XML files that it stores which files are open, the order of the tabs and where I am in each file, but shouldn't it also contain which window/section the file is in?
 
I have looked at the release notes for both 5.15 and 5.20 and neither mention anything like this, so I don't believe updating will help.
 
Thanks

    Bump, surely I can't be the only one who ever wants to do this?

    "Save" is disabled in your config but I remember that I had to tick a box in tools to activate it.
     
    Seems quite a rare bug, I haven't seen that.
     
    Try: Window -> Window Reset Window then enable color style tabs, that may cause config to be updated.
    Also clear the User and Cache Dirs.
     
    Some-one will know.
     
     

    MPLab X playing up, bug in your code? Nevermind, Star Trek:Discovery will be with us soon.
