I made a list of minor issues like that that I have been meaning to
post for some time:

1) It would be great if daughter windows would remember the size they
were the last time you opened them - e.g., Style Editor, File Open. 

2) Make the list of styles in Style Editor resizable so I can read the
entire name of the style (I use long style names).

3) Make the Story Editor remember the position the cursor was in when
it was last used. And make it stop moving the cursor back to the
