Exclamation A few more feature requests, and a few suspected bugs

Hi all,

My sincere apologies if these have been posted before.

Let's start with the feature requests:

Is it possible to save tab states when exiting the main program window?
Meaning, that if I want to close SCRT (let's say for restarting the computer), and then re-open it with the same tabs that it was opened before.
This could be implemented with a checkbox in the global options saving the tab state to a file each time there's a change in tabs (tab opened or closed). If you save the tab state file when changing the tabs and not when exiting, then it could also be useful when the OS crashes.

Adding a "Window" menu option, with all the familiar features like tiling the child windows, or accessing a certain child window (tab).
Being able to tile certain tabs out of all of them will also answer a feature request I've seen here several times, to be able to compare logs or configurations when putting the tabs side by side.

And the last feature, which I will find very very useful.
I have quite a lot of pre-configured sessions in my SCRT, devided into folders, and it's all nice. But sometimes it's hard remembering where a certain session is hiding.
So it would be great if you can add a feature (possibly in the connect dialog) to search for sessions using keywords such as IP address, name, folder name (in case of sub-sub-sub folders), or a description that I entered manually.

Now let's switch to the suspected bugs:

There's an option in the global configuration for "confirm when closing multiple tabs". This is an excellent feature that prevents me from closing the main program window, with a lot of tabs opened, due to old habits from previous versions and by than closing all the opened tabs.
The problem is that even if I want to close a single tab (by any method - i.e. clicking on the 'x', double clicking on the tab name, or closing the main program window when only a single tab is left opened) then it still asks for confirmation.
If it is an intentional feature and not a bug then I'd like to ask this to be controlled by a checkbox in the global configuration, since I wouldn't want to see confirmations when closing a single tab.

This is a bug that I have in previous versions, and I didn't check it on version 5 because I'm still waiting for more licenses to be purchased by my company.
This bug involves a computer with two monitors attached to it, where Windows enables me to line up the monitors side by side, and expand my desktop size.
When moving the SCRT window from one monitor to the other, by having to restore it to non-maximized window and dragging it to the other monitor, then when maximizing the window again to fit the new monitor, the terminal size (rows x columns) stays as it were in the non-maximized window.
My workaround for this is to press Alt-Enter twice, and then the terminal size changes to what it should be.

I hope this wasn't too much for one thread, and I sure hope to see these changes in the official release.

Many thanks and regards,
