Saving layouts

I noticed this feature seemed pretty flaky in 2021.1.0 and was hoping maybe it had become more stable in the latest 2021.1.1

so not sure if this is known issue or not, but the load/save layout features seem extremely prone to failure

my GUESS at this point is that if you have a saved loadout and try to load it up and there is currently no instance of one of the window positions its trying to restore currently onscreen, it will simply fail

This happens a lot with some of the extension editors (eg iray settings, omnigraph, etc) - which won’t spawn windows until you tell Create to open them - so unless you’ve remembered to open these windows first then load/save with them included is just really likely to lose ALL your window layout

Other windows like the anim keys editor seem to automatically spawn their own windows on application load so they seem safer (ie you’re pretty much guaranteed those windows are instanced and therefore the load/save works)

anyway - just a guess :)

Console dump below in case its useful
