Depending on which system I log into I get a variety of initial window sizes for PathFinder/xzplorer. I'd like a xywyg or sdedit type file that sets this size/position
There is no user-editable "resource" file for PathFinder (xzplorer).
If I remember correctly, PathFinder does write out per-user last size/position values (to a hidden file on UNIX and to the registry on Windows).
So once you set the size/position of the main window and the Process Dialog window (and exit the program), PathFinder should be the same next time (on that system for the same user).
Would be interested to know what release and service pack level of XPP you have (and platform too).
I've not seen customers complaining (via support tickets) about what you are describing for a long time now.
But in any case this is something for which you should open up a Case with Customer Support - it's possible if you are on an older release of XPP that it is something we have already addressed.
OK, so that's two customers now. [^o)]
You also should open up a Case with Customer Support. You might want to reference XPP-2409 (internal issue number arising from our QA testing).
There was a problem found (on Windows) where if the user logged out while PathFinder (or XyAdmin) was still running, then bogus size/position values were being written out to the registry and causing something like the symptoms you have described (the next time the user logged in and started these programs).
With XPP-2409 we tried our best to address this.
Unfortunately the problem was being caused by something out of our control (either Windows itself or third-party wxWidgets code that is the framework for PathFinder/XyAdmin). So we addressed it by checking for "sane" size/position values and using default size/position values if needed.
I've seen both your subsequent posts where you indicate you are using the 126.96.36.199 release.
Via a Case with Customer Support you should be able to get a 188.8.131.52 hotfix for PathFinder (xzplorer) and XyAdmin (xyadmin) - and I'm hopeful that it would be an improvement.
It's not a bad suggestion.
However, the (new) way to make requests or suggest ideas like this is via the SDL Ideas community group (for XPP that's at SDL XPP Ideas).
