Is there a way to set the default position where the various pop-up windows (i.e. "Copy", "Move", "Create Ruler", etc.) appear in Layout (X)L? These continuously appear around the middle of the screen and present an annoyance. Having them appear consistently in one of the corners would be nice.
Alternatively, is there a way to turn these off altogether?
Thanks in advance!
If you don't want the forms to show up by default, you can put this in your .cdsenv:ui showOptionForms boolean nil
Or use this in your CIW:envSetVal("ui" "showOptionForms" 'boolean nil)
This setting is on a form: CIW->Options->User Preferences "Options Displayed When Commands Start"
Cadence uses an inconsistent approach to get forms to come up where you want. It would be nice if this was in the .cdsenv, but it isn't. You can use the following commands in your CIW or put them in a .cdsinit file:
Your choices are:top, bottom, left, right, center, default
Relative to:currentWindow, CIW, screen

Works like a charm. Thanks, Derek!
