Changing window size of Dyalog session

Postby michaelk on Sun Oct 10, 2021 4:13 am

My Dyalog session window size has for some reason expanded so that I no longer have access to the - [] X icons at the top of the screen. How do I restore the session size to its original setting, without having to reload Dyalog?

What about pressing (left)Alt+Space, and selecting Move from the popup-menu?

This does not allow the Dyalog session window to move. Perhaps there is some session setting with []SE, but I haven't figured that out.

Have you tried manipulating ⎕SE.Posn (or ⎕SE.Size)? For example:

      ⎕SE.Posn+←100

I just tried this. It changes the size of the session window, but does not provide access to the Windows top line with - and X, etc. I guess I have to uninstall Dyalog Version 18.0.40684 and reinstall it.

Setting Posn changed the Size but did not move the Window? That sounds very strange, I suggest you contact support at dyalog dot com to troubleshoot this.

1. Give the focus to the session window

2. Press <Alt+Space> to get the system menu

3. Press "M" for "Move"

4. Press the right cursor key

Now the window is glued to the mouse, therefore you can move it around with the mouse

5. When the position is what you are after perform a left click. <Escape> would bring the window back to where you started from.

The other option is to delete (or move out of the way) your session file and then recreate it:
      ⎕se.File
will tell you where your session file is: use windows explorer to move it sideways, and then quit Dyalog. Start Dyalog again .. you'll have a very minimal window, but it's enough to run
      )load buildse
BUILD_SESSION'UK'
which will build a new session. Replace UK with one of FR, IT, FI, US, DE or RU. When prompted to save the session file select No, but then you should be able to click on Sesion -> Save As .. and save as the name which ⎕se.File returned in the original session. Now whenever you start Dyalog session you should have a default session.

FWIW the buildse workspace which is included in a release is a copy of the workspace which is used to create the session files which are included in the release.
