Maximizing the script editor

Problem

In HotDocs windows which display the Script Editor (such as the computation variable editor, the script tab of the dialog editor or database editor) you may want to quickly expand the window to full screen but there is a "help" button instead of maximize/minimize buttons.

Solution

To replace the help button in the top right corner of the window with a maximize/minimize buttons you can add a setting to the registry. Warning: as always, take great care when editing the registry directly.

Within this registry key:

  HKEY_CURRENT_USER\Software\HotDocs\HotDocs\Internal

Create a new String Value called "Allow Script Editor Maximize", with a value of "True". This should cause HotDocs to display a maximize button in place of the regular Help button on the computation editor. Help can still be accessed by pressing F1.
