Log window size issue with laptop and external monitor switching

#1 Log window size issue with laptop and external monitor switching

Posted by: sankyo | Date: 05/30/2013 21:36 | IP: IP Logged

Hello,

I use the latest version of PSPad on my laptop with external (bigger) monitor.
Following use case:
I open PSPad on this monitor, I open the log window and resize it in order to see more details. I close PSPad, undock laptop (disconnect the monitor) and start PSPad on the laptop screen. Now sometimes the log window is so big that I cannot resize it. I cannot even scroll to the most upper point in order to export the content of this window.
The problem persists until I dock the laptop again and resize the log window again on the monitor.

I've seen this issue in several versions till now, so it is not version dependent. I had this issue with Windows XP and now with Windows 7.

Any idea how can I fix it?
And no, I cannot alway think about resizing the log window before undocking smiling smiley

Regards and thanks

I found the solution !

Edit PSPad.INI file located in "%AppData%\PSpad" folder with NotePad (don't use PSPad editor to edit the settings)

Find "LogHeight=" and replace the value by "200" for example.

Save the file

Start PSPad and log should be completely visible.

What PSPad version do you use?
There is button on the right top corner of log window to fast set big/small log size
