There are times when my client locks up or worse, crashes. I've had multiple tabs open (mail, calendar, documents, etc). These were things that needed my attention and that got interupted when the client locked up. There should be a way to to save the tabs, as we do in FireFox and IE.

Amen! Jim this has happened to me many times when I had 5-15 tabs open.

First, to provide jargon lucidity. Workspace tabs are always saved--they are stored in the Desktop6.ndk file and are modifiable via the workspace properties dialog box. Each workspace page is denoted by one workspace tab, to create a virtual filing cabinet/Rolodex effect in 2D.

I believe the tabs you are referring to are called Notes Window tabs. :)

Currently, this information is being stored in ND7 and ND8, as they have the capability to Save the tabs through preferences. In N7 you can either Save the current state or Save open windows at shutdown (paraphrasing here). In N8 they simplified it and ensured that you can either save the state at shutdown, or not at all.

It may be appropriate to have notes refresh the stored state every few minutes to ensure that in-case of a lock-up or crash, the data used is more current.

If you enable the Notes preference to save the open tabs, it will reproduce what you had open last launch after a crash--which I concur is annoying as you want to see the last few hours work, rather than have to re-create it. I have crashed a lot early-on with N8, and have not had it remove all my window tabs yet--but I admit it may be possible. If so, that would be even more irksome.

Notes does not need to refresh the sotred state, it could updtae its state when a windows opens and one closes.
