New Window script step

Recommended Posts

Good Morning everyone,

Is there a wqay to open a "New Window" using that script step without UNDOCKING the window you are starting from?

I have a layout that is maxing out the screen real estate so I want a user to be able to call a "floating" button for information that is only required sometimes.

However, when I use the "New Window" script step it undocks the original window giving me an undesired result. I know I could script a close window button in the new window that resets the original window, but something tells me there has to be a better way.

Thanks in advance for any help.

Steve

This issue hits everyone eventually on Windows and you'll find several posts about it. On WinXP if you use maximize window, any new window popup will cause the window behind it to resize. On WinXP, it's best to use Resize to Fit and not maximize.

I was aware of this limitation to a certain extent but I was hoping someone had a creative solution.

Thank you very much for your tip I will rework the layouts to take advantage of "size to fit.
