 Replying to [ticket:457 paoloC]:
 > in wxGUI, Layer Manager, I've just tried these actions:

 This is actually expected behavior. Workspace is not saving one Map
 Display, but all Map Displays, so the vanishing is actually closing both
 and opening just the one previously saved. I assume that the desired
 result was copying of the layers as discussed below.

 project/dsplay (without load entire workspace).

 There is now Copy button in the layer properties (d.* command) dialogs, so
 you can copy the underlying command and paste it the Console (tab) with
 the other display active. This achieves the desired result.

 Closing as fixed.

 Please, open new tickets if you want additional features such as
 Ctrl+C/Ctrl+V in Layers tab or adding one workspace to another.
