Design page for task: Remember column widths in tabular data view.

There's quite old wish for improving usability: table data views should remember their widths to meet user preferences. This is not as straightforward to add as in, say, Spreadsheets. Tabular data view for given table or query can be used by many users, in different configurations (font settings, filters, order, context). So it is useful to save the settings as per user data (this is why User data feature is needed first).

Requirements

  • Backward compatibility
    • Older Kexi versions should just ignore the setting
  • Per user settings
    • Why: For multiuser database projects nobody will change preferred settings for others.
    • How: User data feature needed
