Incorrect tiling on the desktop.

Incorrect tiling on the desktop. - 11/21/02 08:25 PM

I am using 2.40b1, but the problem is not new. If I attempt to tile from the taskbar either horizontally or vertically, the PingPlotter window(s), they are not spaced/sized correctly. They only use about 50% of the space they should and yet still spread out leaving 1/2 the desktop showing through. This happens under at least 2.3x-2.4x and under both W2K and XP.

Any ideas?

Very interesting! I don't have a workaround for you on this one. To be honest, this is the first time I've *ever* used this command on Windows - so I've never noticed this. I'll log it as a defect.

Thanks very much. What I use this feature for is to monitor several different remote locations at once. I launch all of them and then tile the screen to squeeze 9-25 instances on the screen at once. <img src="/forums/images/icons/smile.gif" alt="" /> It used to work fine way back when, but somewhere along the way it started this odd behavior.

Thanks again for a spiffy little tool...
