Since the first version of GTViewer, creating a new session has always created a new view. The view is by default “not” maximized. Perhaps the main reason for defaulting the new view to not maximize was to show off GTViewer’s ability to support a Multi-Document/Multi-View environment. It is not readily obvious that this feature exists if the view windows are always maximized.
Since GTViewer version 4.0, there has been a setting under Options/Settings to change the behavior of a session’s initial view. The property is called Maximize Initial View and you can leave it like it is or you can change it to true which will maximize the initial view of any newly created session. You can then set this value as the default for the application and it will be used from that point forward.
A new session created with the Maximize Initial View set to No is shown below:
A new session created with the Maximize Initial View set to Yes is shown below:
