[sane-devel] xsane - save standard scan format

Original question:

Can I save the scan size in which is displayed in xsane's preview
window? - In my setup it always switches back to "full size", i'd
rather have "A4 portrait", because I use this in 99% of all cases.

I tried. But xsane's behaviour remained. So this may be the correct
standard behaviour? - "Always forget the last setting of scan size" ?
