Window size and position

Window size and position

Window size and position

We use Microstation version I have a dual monitor setup while some people have a single monitor setup. So when I open DGN's other than the ones I setup the window sizes are all wrong for my display. I was hoping someone might be able to point me in the right direction with a keyin, macro, or a configuration setting that I can change in order to resize and position the windows according to my preference.

Thanks for any help you can offer,


RE: Window size and position

Check your display settings in windows, under settings you have the ability to change your configuration setting to accomadate your monitors. Hope this helps some

RE: Window size and position

Thank you for the suggestion. I didn't think to mention that I use microstation across both monitors. The keyin, macro, etc., I'm refering to would resize the views in microstation window 1, window 2 and window 7. I'm just trying to save myself some time and trouble by using a macro instead of having to drag the window/view to the proper location and then resize the window/view manually. It only becomes a bit of a hassle resizing manually when I QC a lot of DGN's per day. Here are some before and after pics of what I'm wanting to do:
