BAO continues to improve consistently, and there were many good changes in the latest 5.4 release. However, I do notice that "projects" do not save the look or view or state of the map between sessions. This means that if I have to go in and edit, or just tweak the tiniest thing in a given project, I have to go back into the assets pane and turn on and configure all of my layers and objects! A needless time-waster, IMHO.
It seems to be that the previous version did a much better job saving the "state" of a map.
E.g.: I make a map with some tracts and a ZIP showing. Now I layer in 2016 pop data and color only the tracts, while putting the ZIP in outline with some special attributes. I make a PDF or JPEG. Now, I neeed to come back in, do a tweak, and do another JPEG. I find upon returning to the project, all my objects deselected. I have to go turn on everything. And worse, the custom setup for my 2016 pop layer must be almost re-done.
Please have some way to save the view of BAO projects.
