Asking this here, rather than mailing Tabitha, since I figured someone else might have the same problem some time.

Does anyone know what to do when you adjust the size of the window for Clio, then it won't let you open it again as it claims the size is wrong? I've re-installed, deleted the folder, even deleted the registry entry.

Clio doesn't really do any window handling itself, it uses the DOS window. About the only windowing problem that would cause Clio to bail out would be if it couldn't get a DOS window of at least 80 columns by 24 lines.

It may be that your default DOS window has been resized to something less that this, and that is what is upsetting Clio. If this is the case, then cure is to start a DOS window on its own, and resize it to at least 24x80. (25x80 is better) Then quit the DOS window and Clio should run OK.

Tabitha.
