Layouts -- Ignore Main Window Size And Position

#1 Post by thisguycecil » 30.05.2020, 21:50

Hello.

My environment: FCXE64 v819 in Win10_x64.

I really like the recent new option for a custom layout to "ignore main window size and position".

Perhaps I am missing something, but is there a general toggle somewhere in FCXE64's settings where you can trigger this option for _all_ layouts during a FCXE session? Basically, a temporary setting which is not saved with any custom layouts?

Definitely, I have been looking forward to this new option, so many thanks for adding it. Just trying to explore its potential.

Thanks in advance for any advice.

Regards, Cecil

- Close FreeCommander
- open the freecommander.ini with editor
- find the line with LayoutsIgnoreMainWindowSize
- set the value to 1: LayoutsIgnoreMainWindowSize=1
- save the edited file
- start FreeCommander

Thanks, Marek.

I guess this solution basically requires an external-to-FCXE approach with a scripting tool which does INI-line replacement.

Will go to the Feature Request forum section to add a wish for a FCXE-menu-option route to change this INI setting.

Thanks, again.
