    How do you save main window size and placement upon boot-up?

    John@CAMS Level 1

      Is there any way for a dual-monitor user to convince InDesign to remember the size and shape of the main window when I boot up?  I use InDesign on my second monitor, which I have rotated to portrait mode.  The workspace I have saved remembers all of my menues and panels, but the main window always shows up on my main monitor.  InDesign 5 remembered....

       

      Also, how do you permanently turn off that damn "getting started" window?

       

      Thanks.

          I'm guessing your on a Mac with a recent version of Mac OS X. Am I correct?

           

          You'll have the best luck having InDesign remember your window size if you choose Window > Application Frame. Then resize the frame to the size you prefer. It should stick.

           

          People have found bugs with windows on a secondary monitor if they're using Mac OS X 10.10.2. If you're running 10.10.3 it should solve that problem.

           

          To get rid of the Getting Started window, scroll to the bottom of most tabs, and choose not show the window again by checking a checkbox.
