Pick one of the sizes you want.

Now it is very easy to put an element way outside the page BY MISTAKE and when it's opened in Mach you will get a tiny little page.

But MachScreen allows you to set a maximum page size so that can't happen

 do me a favour, open  task manager and look at page file then open Mach Screen and see what you get. I tried MachScreen at the workshop the other day and it slowed my system to a crawl, its not an ultra modern system at the workshop but its no Jurassic park inhabitant either.

Anyway it went from 480 Mb to 1.19 Gig when Machscreen is running

The laptop has 2 Gig memory

Yes seems to be the same on all  my computers, round about 730 to 750Meg. Not an issue with my desktop here but certainly my workshop one wasnt happy.

I did just close my screen set as though i am starting fresh screen set usage didn't change.

Maybe you should ask Klaus's opinion ?

To be honest I am not really bothered at the moment as I dont use  it. Only reason I looked was it will likely be the designer of choice with Rev4 of Mach. It is a powerful programme from first glance but for what I do its not needed.

I am not surprised it will be used for REV 4

Yes it is very powerful,l but the main thing is it's so easy.

I like looking at all the slightly out of position elements of the wizard set files

In 10 mins they are all the same size where needed and perfectly aligned, no one can do that in Screen4 that easily otherwise they would be right to begin with.  ;D ;D ;D
