I got a new 27 iMac (lucky me) but InDesign always opens documents to full size of screen (too big) can I control this anywhere?
Sick of resizing everytime I open a doc.
I do not know of a built in method.
open a document and position it how you want it to fill the screen (or not).
Run the script. (it then saves the position)
after that, whenever you open any document, run the script to quickly reposition it to the desired location.
NOTE: this does NOT function with the tabbed panels, you will need your documents to be floating. Worked with CS2 and CS4 (and I assume CS3, though I never had that version).
Someone correct me if I'm wrong. It seems like there is a logic to how it works. In CS3, if you have some pallets open and then open a doc, the doc will fit inside of the pallets and toolbars bounds, if someone else made the doc. If you make a doc or save a document and reopen it, it should save the window size, when reopened on your computer. But if another person edits the doc on a computer with another screen size, I bet it will resize back to the "full screen" or "fit inside toolbars" mode when you open it.
I have not seen a control to "limit" the size of a document window. Might be able to have an Applescript to automatically shrink it down to a size you like.
Not sure if this will help you, but if you 'attach' your toolbar and your palette windows to the side of the screen , when you open a document it will fit within the window.
I found my InDesign documents were opening under my toolbar and under my palette windows, and was unable to find an answer, so i tried this and it works. Seems obvious I know.
To attach the toolbar or palette, drag the dark grey bar to the side of your screen, when you see a neon blue line appear on the edge of your screen it will be attached. The end result should look like the attached picture.
