    I've seen this in the Apple store... different folders can remember different view settings.

    On my MBP (10.5.5) different folders can remember their own settings like icon size and spacing, as well as file arrangement and sorting. But the view settings (icon, list, columns, cover flow) do not differ per folder... if you switch in one folder, every folder will have that view setting.

    Anybody have any idea?

    I figured it out... just posting this in case anybody else is wondering.

    Folders can set to "Always open in ___ view" by first selecting the view, then going to View > Show View Options (Cmd+j) and checking the box at the top of the window that appears. :D
