Opening screen
Hello,
The following screenshot 1 shows how Gimp is loading onto my monitor.

Screenshot 2 shows how I would like gimp to open. This is a small matter but it would save me several steps each time I open gimp.

   

   






Thank you,
Angster

RE: Opening screen
As far as I can tell, I have tried them all. I have ticked the save window positions now.
Save window positions on closing. I even switched the utility positions to normal, and unticked the focused image setting. None of them worked.

I appreciate your help so please,
angster

RE: Opening screen
I think you asked a similar question earlier.

The problem is not so much Gimp, which comes from a Unix background, as with M$ which has very basic windows handling. So say the usual M$ trick of setting the shortcut to open maximised does not work. I've had a look for some M$ windows managers (free) and I can't find anything suitable. There is also the old 'dewierdyfier ' plugin http://registry.gimp.org/node/1811 but that is buggy and not really a good solution.

Just using the Gimp preferences I come up with this (don't worry only 1.5 mins, boredom factor, small)

That works for the first image but of course open another image on top and that window is not maximised.

Gimp 2.8 should be along soon which has tabbed image windows, maybe try Partha's pre-release or if you fancy a switch to linux, any distro using KDE windows management has more options than you will ever want.

Thanks Rich,
I think I will wait for 2.8. Gimp is a great software and I am enjoying it immensely thanks to you guys who back up this forum.
