Hi Natalie... If you're working on binary FM files (not opening an XML file), it *should* open to the size, zoom, and position that it was last saved. If you have the document minimized and you do a "Save All Files" .. it'll reopen in a minimized state. Or possibly someone else has been working on these files, and they are getting saved in other states.
We have a plugin called RestoreWindows that lets you specify the size, position and zoom for new or opened document windows, as well as the state and position of the other catalogs, palettes, and windows. You can use the 30-day trial to give it a whirl. http://www.leximation.com/tools/info/restorewindows.php This is most useful for XML files, but also alleviates the problem you describe in a multi-user environment. ...scott Scott Prentice Leximation, Inc. www.leximation.com +1.415.485.1892 Natalie Bircher wrote: > Can I specify the size of the window that opens when I open a new file? > Sometimes the window opens at 120% sometimes it opens as a rectangle, and > other times it just opens the file and is minimized at the bottom of the > screen.
