Every time I open 9.5 all of my tabs VANISH!

Please advise - thanks - DL

What tabs? Do you mean, the audio files are not restored when relaunching WaveLab? or the tool window tabs?

Tool Window Tabs and Audio files.

If you restore the default layout from the Workspace menu, load some files, quit and relaunch, still the same problem?

Yes, same problem. Any open work and tabs are gone upon restart.

We will need to test this on a system like yours.
And with the unchecked option I told you in the other thread?

I actually solved this one! Somehow my preferences had been set to OPEN EMPTY PROJECT on every restart. All good, thanks!
