All,

Can someone please tell me how you initiate GDL at startup to have a custom window size? I can't seem to change it without specifically using

WINDOW, "Name", XSIZE = x, YSIZE = y

which continuously opens new windows... this is not good when you;re attempting to visualise a highly complicated integrand which is evolving and replotting many times a second! :-)

I've tried things like

!D.X_SIZE = 800
!D.Y_SIZE = 600

which I got from an IDL manual, but the konsole gives me n error message at startup which states that I'm trying to write to a read-only variable, so clearly that's not the way!

Much obliged,

Dave C
