Red Hat Bugzilla – Bug 154371
EOG doesn't remember window size, or splitter/sash location, and has non-sensible defaults for the latter

From Bugzilla Helper:
User-Agent: Mozilla/5.0 (X11; U; Linux i686; en-US; rv:1.7.6) Gecko/20050323 Firefox/1.0.2 Fedora/1.0.2-1.3.1
Description of problem:
When you double-click a jpeg file in nautilus, eog is run to display the image. The window size is always chose automatically, and provides a reasonable default for viewing the image for a given screen-size. However, the vertical splitter/sash is always positioned very close to the right-hand edge of the window, so one always has to move the splitter/sash to make any sensible use of the file information/EXIF viewer pane/panel.
Also, all the sections in the EXIF viewer ("Camera", "Image Data", ...) are "closed" upon application startup, so the arrow must be click to expand those sections to see pretty much any useful information.
The splitter/sash should be positioned automatically at startup so that the file information window is wide enough to be useful. EXIF sections should be pre-expanded, so that manual expansion isn't required to browse the information there.
Version-Release number of selected component (if applicable):
Steps to Reproduce:
1. Double click an image (.e.g .jpg) file in nautilus.
2. Note that eog is launced to view the image
Actual Results: Splitter/sash is positioned such that file info/EXIF is practicaly hidden
Expected Results: File info/EXIF pane/panel should be large enough to be automatically sized to be useful.
Fedora Core 3 is now maintained by the Fedora Legacy project for security
updates only. If this problem is a security issue, please reopen and
reassign to the Fedora Legacy product. If it is not a security issue and
hasn't been resolved in the current FC5 updates or in the FC6 test
release, reopen and change the version to match.
Closing this out; it's not relevant in F8 since eog seems to have been
re-designed not to use a splitter/sash any more.
