Inconsistent Tool Windows sizes



When I started using WebStorm I've shrunk Project and Commit tool windows a bit. I've used Ctrl+Alt+Shift+Left to use steps and make both windows exactly the same size. After that I stored current layout as default.

When changing the size of WebStorm's window (switching to another resolution or de-maximizing) and back breaks tool windows size settings: my two windows are different widths which is really annoying.

Restoring default layout fixes this but I have to do it after every window size chenge! Extremely annoying :-\


Is there any way to keep tool windows same size?

Or at least some reset to default sizes.

This happens in Rider as well.


Thank you for the help.

Surely, it does.

Checking this and related issues - it seams this is really long-term and really annoying problem.

How did this came it still has no fix?

As for my second question: is there a way to reset these layouts to default setting? Without reseting ALL settings. Like editing some .xml file or so.


Thank you.

The configuration is stored in <IDE config>/options/window.state.xml file under the

<component name="WindowManager">

node. There is no dedicated action to reset it to the IDE defaults.
