Reply to: Restoring minimized document

I see what you mean about maximizing previously open files after restarting the product rather than remembering the window state. I see the old behavior (where it remembered the window state for each document and restored it when opening them at startup) with older versions (including 3.1).

It sounds like ultimately it would be nice for you to have a set of APIs, possibly attached to the Document object (ActiveDocument), that would let you control these things programmatically.

Long term we might actually change the MDI interface, and so implementing new APIs to support the current UI might not make much sense if it becomes obsolete when (if) we do that. We've had a few requests for a more “Visual Studio-y” or “Firefox-y” UI (one that is tab-centric). That doesn't mean we'll actually implement anything though and it would be some time out anyway if it was done.
