In another thread, I had mentioned I had a problem with my persistent_config file not being recognized or acted upon. It was suggested that I post a new topic and upload my persistent_config file, I am also uploading my config file in hopes it willl be helpful.

What I am attempting to do is position certain windows (such as the sitrep, messages & fleet) where I prefer them (Left side of scree; Message on top, Sitrep below and Fleet at bottom) rather than their default locations.

I'm attempting to upload with this message a screenshot of what I want as well as the persistent_config file. If someone can point pout where I went wrong it would be appreciated.

The line endings are DOS, I am guessing you edited this with Notepad or Wordpad? You will want to use a more capable editor for editing files (one which does not change the line endings), one option is Notepad++.
Attached a modified version if it helps. Will update wiki to clarify the notepad/wordpad issue, thanks!

Still, FO on Windows should be able to handle DOS line endings in a config file...

@Dbenage: Thanks will give it a try. I actually used a program called NoteTab lite.. Will check out Notepad++ for future use.

Thanks for the help and suggestion

ghealy, You may need to add the following line just inside of the <UI> tag. It will prevent freeorion from auto-positioning the windows back to the defaults if you resize the window.
Code:
     
    <UI>
         <auto-reposition-windows>0</auto-reposition-windows>

Thanks for that heads-up.
