There I was browsing through my feeds this morning with the headline pane on
the top, the feed on the bottom and the reading pane on the left when all of a
sudden, I pressed some key or combination of keys and almost everything
changed. My headline pane disappeared, the feed pane appeared at the top with
a tab which I couldn't close.
I found the headline pane at the bottom of the page and was able to raise it
up some, but I still can't get back to the configuration I had before.
Can anyone be of any help to me on this? I have been using this for years and
haven't had quite this problem before.
depending on the version of Bandit you use, you may find a file
".settings2.xml" in your local
This file contains the UI widget settings (form positions, layout, sizes,...).
To get around the display issue, please rename/delete this file, then start
the application again.
Yes, t_rendelmann, I do find the file .settings2.xml, although not
quite where you thought. I followed your suggestion and, first, deleted the
file, then renamed it. In both cases, the file was recreated when RSS Bandit
was restarted. I suppose this might mean that .settings.xml might be corrupt,
but I'm not sure. I can, of course use the program the way it is, but
everything is now upside down. LOL.
Any other ideas, or anyone?
No, there is no .settings.xml missing or destroyed: the "2" means .NET
framework version "2". Re-creation of the file is intended. Does your initial
issue still exists?
This morning, I decided to just make a copy of the .settings.xml file and
rename that file as .settings2.xml. Whatever the reason, I now have my old
display back. I sure wish I knew which key or key combination I hit to screw
up the display before so I could try to avoid it from now on.
Anyway, I'm back to my normal.
