I'd like to put a bounty of $10.000 for development of a much requested feature so that XFCE's window manager remembers window size & position much like KDE does.
Many Linux desktop users would really appreciate it if some other desktop environment would include such a feature.
While a nice try, Smart placement doesn't really cut it.
Dev Team: please contact me directly, off-bugzilla, to confirm I'm not trolling.
Meanwhile, as many others, I'm stuck with KDE and not 100% happy...
Sorry, design decision in xfce are not open to bribery.
And this bug does not really look like a proper enhancement request, "I want xfce to be like KDE" is not a good description, my answer to this is if you want KDE, use KDE...
So what is it exactly that you're after?
You want xfwm4 to "remember" the size/position of all windows even after they quit so that they get placed at the same location if they ser re-open the apps?
xfwm4 already does that for session management, you want the same mechanism within a session?

My offer was definitely not intended as bribery.
If I could fork/contribute/code the stuff myself I would - As I can't I'm willing to pay for someone to do it. Some projects appreciate "feature sponsoring".

I don't want XFCE to look like KDE - it's not about the look.
I'd like XFCE to provid a feature which, afaik, seems unique to KDE and while looking around for an alternative Window Manager to replace KDE's bulk, XFCE seems like the best I looked at.
After using XFCE for a week on a separate machine, XFCE is the big winner in many aspects and the only thing which bugged me was the amount of time I spent moving windows around 2 monitor setups or doing miles of movement on my main 40" 4k display because of the lack of real "placement memory"
thanks for reconsidering your comment

yes, exactly. between sessions and in same session.
if this could be set per application that would be like Xmas
remember size [x]
remember placement [x]
