Can't resize standard small window.

Here's where to discuss using Stéphane Leys' very well done alternative runtime editor. If you're a control freak at runtime you have to check this out!

Can't resize standard small window.

Postby drpitcairn » Sat May 09, 2009 8:25 am

I made a standard small window but then later would like it to be larger but can't figure out how to do that. I have gone to the PI and changed window size but it just immediately reverts back to what it was. I thought I needed to change bg size as well but, again, can't seem to find my way to the bg settings. In the PI there is "card, project, global properties" but no bg.
I must understand how this works.

Never mind. The rule of "once you post you figure it out" came in to play. I went back to SC, in PI choose the bg button and then was able to see bg size and adjust it. Duh!

Yes, the big rule of MPI is "stick to the context". You're editing the card, it shows you the properties of the card, you're editing the background, it shows you the properties of the background.
Quite consistent, no ? ;-)

BTW, you can also type cmd-B for editing the bg and coming back to the cd.
