Keeping the same tabs/panes open while grading projects

I’m grading a boatload of projects. I want to position panes in a particular way, with the console beneath the code, the debugger to the right, and I don’t need the instructions open at all. But every time I go to the next submission the system resets itself, and I have to reposition these. It’s a real pain.

How can I layout my code, console, and any other panes in one position and have them stay there? I’m assuming others have figured this out, please let me know!

I guess it’s embedded in the replit itself, so unless there’s a better solution I’ll just be more particular about which panes I have open before I publish the project and tell the students they can rearrange the panes however they want, but to restore my arrangement before they submit.

I have the same issue. Also when I want to pull up a student’s project on my screen when they ask for help: having to close/resize/etc. each time makes it take that much longer to help each student, over and over.

I.e. a “preferred view” with tabs a certain way, tutorials closed and ideally files open in tabs too. Again this would be for teachers grading, I still want the tutorial video to pop up when students open their projects, but the tutorial panel is useless with the nothing I have on there and it takes up almost half the screen.


This is killing me! It has killed my productivity grading and make me hate grading now.

really sorry to hear that even though I’m just a volunteer for replit I still don’t like some of the changes replit has made XD
