Disappearing columns are still with us. v9.26 pre-release4&5&6 ** VERY ANNOYING ** PLEASE FIX THIS !!!

I opened the grid. Normally there are 5-8 columns. What appears you can see below. This problem occurs only occasionally. I can reconstruct this grid but it's a PITA.  It may have something to do with IQ being closed down incorrectly.The only thing I can point to is that overnight windows d/l and updated & reset my system. IQ was still open when I left last night.  Auto save is set for every 15 mins.dB options.

09/14/12 bumped - Pierre I think this problem deserves some attention. I'm not the only one. Tks.
09/22/12 bumped - Windows updated & re-started computer overnight. The incomplete view is the same one. 
10/11/12 bumped - Windows updated & re-started computer overnight. The incomplete view is the same one & not the one in focus
11/17/12 bumped - Windows updated & re-started computer overnight. Again, the same view appeared incomplete
11/30/12 bumped - working on grid, closed it & re-opened grid. All but outline column gone even though this is reported fixed in 9.26 pre-rel 5
11/30/12 bumped - working on grid, changed a column property (duedate) all columns except for item disappeared (first time THAT happened but same result)
12/01/12 bumped - working on grid, changed date format option, all columns except for item disappeared AGAIN !!! @#$%&*(&^%$
12/05/12 bumped - See www.sqlnotes.net/drupal5/index.php  for the sad details

 I had the same thing yesterday with the earlier version of W10. First time it had happened to me, 20-odd columns vanishing. As far as I know the file had been closed correctly. Luckily I was able to go back to a previous version in Dropbox with minimal data loss. Certainly less time wasted than if I had to re-create those columns.

John, you mention 'data loss' when I don't think you really meant that. I'm sure you know your data wasn't lost, just wasn't visible. 
 
Thanks for posting a foloup. I guess it's not connected to IQ closing properly. Hmmmmm. Maybe Pierre can figure something out. It's just plain odd behavior

True... it does occur but rarely and it's hard to track down 
 
How about if grid setups were saved and if one could revert to a previous one ?
(and why not, eventually, navigate through a history of grid configs...)
 
This might kill 2 birds with a stone (what a horrible expression, isn't ?)

Pierre,
 
I think your solution is an excellent one. 
 
For those odd events it would simplify regenerating the grids.
 
Personally, I don't think you need to go beyond having IQ remember the last setup.

Ha ! I know of at least one user that will want it... any guess who ?

Well, yes, if it's there, I'll use it once in a while. :)

Happened to me a couple times this month also.
 
I would LOVE to be able to save grid layouts.  Here it grid switching on uservoice - http://mantis.sqlnotes.net/view.php?id=1105 - not sure where it is on mantis (or if anyone is really looking at it).

PS, Here is the disappearing columns on mantis - http://mantis.sqlnotes.net/view.php?id=1105.

Jan,
In this case there was some data loss - the entries I had made in updates subsequent to the Dropbox version I had to revert to to retrieve the correct grid. Luckily there weren't many and even more luckily I remembered what they were!
John.
