The view settings, like the column order and width, aren't saved in the 
.tc file, it's saved in the tellicorc file in your KDE config directory. 
The view settings are saved per collection type, every time you close 
Tellico or open another file.

It sounds like you've got multiple Tellico files, all of the same type 
(Books, video, etc.). And you want to have different view settings on a 
per file basis, rather than per collection type basis, is that right?
