Create the palette by evaluating your code, then use File->Install and choose the Source the current window name for your palette (which will probably be Untitled-n where n is some number). It will be in the pop-up. Then type the name you want the palette to be installed as in the "Install Name" and click "Finish". It will then be in the Palettes menu. Once opened from the Palettes menu, the front end will remember to keep it open in future sessions. Sincerely, John Fultz jfultz at wolfram.com User Interface Group Wolfram Research, Inc.
