During my workflow, with copy and paste and opening files, I find my Layer panel gone every time.

I have to press F7 again and wait.
How can I make the Layer panel (or any panel) persistant in presence in Illustrator?

Is your Layers panel perhaps docked to the side of the screen? If that is the case, you can set up in Preferences > User interface that Panels do not automatically minimize by unchecking that option.

In the Illustrator preferences there is an option called "Auto-Collapse Panels".

 

Is that option turned on or off?
