  • Autoresizing of windows

    OK...so I get this new widescreen display, get it all hooked up and all seems good. For some reason now the autoresizing of windows functionality is gone. I am referring to the clicking of a side or corner of a window and as you drag it bigger or smaller the windows touching it resize as well. Once I got used to this feature I grew to love it.

    Is there something I inadvertently disabled in my settings while setting up a new custom layout in Edius.

    Thanks,

    You have to hold down shift if you want to resize individual windows, once they snap, they start resizing together.

      I seemed to have "unsnapped" them all from each other. How do I put them back to being "snapped" together. I want to be able to enlarge my player window and all the others resize to accomodate the player window. I can't get that to work now.

        Can you confirm that they are touching each other when you attempt to resize?

          They are definitely touching. Any time I grab a corner or side to expand or move the window just grows independently and isn't dragging any other windows along. I can live with this but I was really getting spoiled with the old functionality. :-(

            I am pretty sure that there is a setting that disables that, but for the life of me I cannot think of it.

              To my knowledge, there isn't. From v4.xx onward, EDIUS will always want to snap to other windows...even ones that aren't part of the EDIUS gui (ie. other applications behind the current EDIUS interface).

              Has something been done to the actual Windows interface? Running anything that modifies the desktop theme, or reskins it? You're running XP right?

              Otherwise, has StickyKeys been enabled for the SHIFT keys (they're the snap override)?

                I got a new monitor and had trouble getting the graphics card to stop thinking it was a HDTV. I may have done something in the process of tweaking the graphics card but can't remember all the things I did. I did go from dual view with 2 monitors to a single monitor system.


                What is the StickyKeys you referred to. Is it a function in Edius or Windows?

                  Just to add to what I know....When I am moving windows around on the screen they are "snapping" to the edges of other windows. You can see it happen but when I drag a corner all the other window pieces don't grow or shrink in conjunction.

                    I am encountering the same problem. Prior to v4.54, I could resize the overlay and bin windows by moving my mouse over the intersection between the 2 windows and dragging. This no longer happens. If I move the mouse slightly to the right, I can resize the bin window. If I move the mouse slightly to the left, I can resize the overlay window. It is, now, possible to create overlapping windows.

                    Personally, this does not bother me as I am accustomed to this type of window behavior when working in Microsoft Visual Studio. It's just that this is new behavior in Edius.

                      I tried resizing windows in Edius 4.54 from my Dell computer that does not use a widescreen monitor. I encounter no problem resizing multiple windows. I encounter the problem only on my normal editing system that has a widescreen monitor.

                      Edius help states:
                      When multiple windows are placed in alignment, all the snapped windows can be resized at one time by resizing one of them. Resize operation while holding down [Shift] key resizes only the selected window. However, this function may be unable depending on the setting of Windows.

                        Ok...so a computer running dual monitors at full resolution of 2560x1024 does just fine with the resizing of windows but a computer running only 1680x1050 doesn't. I guess those extra 26 vertical pixels make a big difference. :-(.

                        I almost never say that is just screwy about Edius but if that is the case "that is just screwy". I am one of the biggest Edius fanboy's but I don't understand that. If that is truly the case I have to smile. Won't really affect my productivity much. I just happened to learn to like that function and now I miss it. Not enough to go back to dual monitors yet....I am liking this one big widescreen. Not as much real estate but I can set the windows up in a way that I am working just as quickly and I get more desk space.

                          My Dell system works fine at a resolution of 1280 x 1024. My Supermicro system does not work at a resolution of 1920 x 1200.

                          It might be that a verticle resolution above 1024 causes problems?!?

                              Bandman - are you running Best Performance on your Supermicro?

                              Windows only snap if your system is set to run 'Best Appearance' in my computer/properties/advanced/performace, anybody running a system tuned to run default 'Best Performance' in windows will experience windows in Edius that won't resize together.

                              If you really want to disable all the bells and whistles and feel that your sys runs better without, then you can just choose a user defined setup and choose 'Show contents in windows when dragged' or whatever it is in an English windows :)

                              Messy! Sometimes Edius reminds me of a Linux app.
