Cursor and view positions are not correctly restored when using split view. Different cases working partially or not at all.
Option Session management -> "including window configuration" is checked.
Steps to Reproduce:
Closing/opening kate :
1. Display a vertically splitted view.
2. Open 2 quite large files in the 2 frames and scroll to the middle of the files.
3. Click there in the 2 files.
4. Close Kate.
5. Open Kate.
Changing session :
1. Use a named session.
2. Display a vertically splitted view.
3. Open 2 quite large files in the 2 frames and scroll to the middle of the files.
4. Click there in the 2 files.
5. Open another session.
6. Open the first session again.
Cursor and view positions in the right frame are lost.
Cursor and view positions in the left frame are lost if this frame was the last you clicked in or if you close/open kate (or change session and return) a second time. If you click in the left frame then in the right frame and then close/open kate (or change session and return), cursor and view positions in the left frame are restored the first time.
When positions are lost, the documents explorer does not display the current file (when opening kate, file hierarchy is folded while the document is open).
All of this does work correctly with a non-split view.
Positions are saved and restored for the files not displayed by a frame (display a third document, click in the middle, display the first document in the frame, close and open kate, display the third document again : positions have been restored correctly).
Positions should be saved and restored.
File hierarchy should be unfold and display current document.
Correct, this does not work. There is a fix which is about to be committed for the Kate Applications 16.04.x release, see https://git.reviewboard.kde.org/r/128163/.
