Reset Docked Tool Windows to a default on Slickedit startup
« on: October 31, 2012, 04:30:34 pm »
I keep my search tool window docked at the bottom of my Slickedit view.  I have my "coding" screen rotated so I can see lots of code at once.  I tend to re-size the search window up and down a lot during my daily activity.  Sometimes, I accidentally leave it up too high and then undock my computer.  The next time I start up Slickedit (while undocked with the smaller laptop screen), the search window fills the view and I can't see the top bar to make it smaller; I also cannot see the code window.  This makes Slickedit absolutely useless until I re-dock.

I'd like Slickedit to reset the size/height of the docked search results window to some small default each time I start the program.

Yes, I know I could set it to auto-hide but I don't really like that function; I like the search window always visible.

Alternately, I could use some key binding to reset the sizes to a default (but that assumes I have a function which does so which I could then just attach to the startup event).

Any suggestions appreciated...

Thanks,

~Ben

Running 'tbresetall' from the SlickEdit command-line will reset your tool-window layout.

Is there any way to set/change what the default is?
