Here you can suggest additions and modifications to BB4W or BBCSDL

Help pages sprawling over two monitors!

Post by 5against4 » Wed 11 Jul 2018, 19:08

Every time i open the BB4W Help pages to refer to, because i use two monitors (one ABOVE the other, not side by side) the window opens sprawled across the full vertical spread of the two monitors, which is obviously unhelpful and has to then be resized to the right place.

Obviously (or, at least, i assume) this isn't something anyone on the forum other than Richard can do anything about - so this is just a plea that the next update amends this rather silly default and more sensibly just maximises itself to the primary screen!

Interesting: on my system here (side by side monitors) or at home (single monitor) the help opens in a sensible but not full-screen window.

Best wishes,

i'm guessing that this monitor configuration simply wasn't considered when BB4W was designed, which is a shame. It's only a small thing, of course, hardly a major issue, but BB4W is the only program i have that does this!
