Description

Background: I recently interacted with a site creator who posted this topic in the WordPress.org support forums:

https://wordpress.org/support/topic/add-new-post-screen-layout/

Upon further exploration, I noted that it is possible to toggle various panes (especially pertaining to plugin features) to display or not display.

However, if you toggle them to display (the default setting), the editor screen/viewport can become quite small, as much real estate is reserved for these panes.

If a user toggles the panes to NOT display, it is not ideal, as they may need access to these panes sporadically.

A possible solution would be to enable state memory. Essentially, each pane can be expanded or collapsed using a small arrow in the top right of the pane already.

MY FEATURE REQUEST:
Remember the state of each pane so that when the user returns to the editor, the various panes are in their last state (expanded or collapsed).
