TakeCommand screen width

Nov 2, 2009

I want Take Command/LE to open, fill my whole screen (2 x 1200x1600, portrait, side-by-side) and be completely functional across the whole screen. And I can't seem to get there.

TCMD/LE seems to take its operational workspace as a cue from the starting properties of TCC.EXE. When I set that program to start up in a wider screen (with a smaller font size) in its own right, it affects TCMD/LE. The upside is I'm getting more than 100 columns of text. The down-side is, TCMD/LE's TCC window doesn't take its width cue from the width of the TCMD/LE window.

Neither do any of the other cmd windows that get Attached to TC/LE's window. Them I can forgive, but TCC? Can't this "just work"? Or is there some setting that I've missed through inattention?

help...ank

This is a Windows limitation, not a TCC or TCMD/LE limitation. The maximum
console window size you're allowed (and thus the maximum displayable size in
a TCMD/LE tab) is based on the current console font size and the screen
width. If you want the maximum possible size, you have to change your
default console font settings (not in TCC, but in the console properties or
in the registry) to a (very) small size.
