How did the Project Central display options change to "remember" my selections?

The expand / collapse feature in Project Central has always made it very easy to jump between different levels of your project schedule. A new option called Automatic has been added to this menu to expand the work breakdown of the project schedule to sections that have the earliest task and in process tasks. This makes it very easy to navigate to the currently active or most relevant part of the schedule, especially for larger schedules that have multiple levels. Project Central will also remember the expansion selection and automatically use that when a project is revisited in Project Central. This article describes how Project Central now remembers your selections.
