Default text window size
« on: July 18, 2006, 11:12:14 am »
When I use Slickedit to start editing a file, I find I always do the following: 1) open the file, and 2) resize it horizontally since the default width is always to wide (much wider than a page width especially on a wide screen monitor).

Has anyone written a script to remember the last text window width and restore it when opening the next file?

Thanks,
Peter

hi codeguru (by the way: a good forum as well!)

Try this: tools -> options -> general -> go to the 'General'-TAB and cross 'Maximize first window'

I'm not sure whether I got your problem right...

I hope that helps!
Marcel

Hi Folks,

There's a macro posted at this thread, "How do I get SlickEdit to create smaller windows"
( http://community.slickedit.com/index.php?topic=73.msg291#msg291 ), that has the macro that you are looking for.

Best,
