Widget Layer Visibility Statefulness

This is just a general question as to where I should post a feature request of stateful layer visibility in the Widgets area. Having to hide and show layers after each save is very time consuming and having those layers remember their last visibility setting would be immensely helpful.

Could you explain differently? I'm totally lost what you mean.

On the widget placement screen in the Orchard Admin UI, you can turn layer visibility on and off on the right hand side of the screen by clicking on the little eyeball. When I'm working on a few specific sets of layers, every single time I save a widget those layer visibility choices reset and when working with a LOT of layers this can be troublesome. It would be nice if they remained visible / not visible so I could move through widgets and work quickly.

Ah, I see. Yes, totally, please open an issue about it and we'll triage it.

BTW as a workaround you can keep the Widgets page open and open individual widget editors in new tabs to overcome this.
