Window positioning is very easy in Win-Test. Simply click and hold the title bar on the window in question, and drag it where you want it! Releasing the mouse button will fix it in that position. Windows can be overlapped without any problem.
Floating window layout
By default, Win-Test positions all its child windows within one big window (with a green CT-like background). However, we understand this may not be to everyone's liking. As a result, there is a floating window option which will position all the child windows where you like with the main window being resized also to just show the log data. Press the Enlarge symbol to the right of the image caption (the two little squares) to display a hi resolution version of this image.
Right clicking on a window enables you to configure various options specific to that window. For example, with most windows you can change the titlebar background colour (default is red for all windows) and also change the font size, weight and typeface (sans-serif or serif).
Changing the log font
You can configure the log font settings (size, weight and sans-serif/serif) by going to the
Options | Log | Font menu. These settings can of course be altered at any stage during a contest with an opened log. You can also modify the font size by using your mouse wheel while holding the [Ctrl] key down (a la Mozilla/Firefox). Currently, there are four fonts: small, medium, large, extra large which you can use in regular or bold print.
Textual windows can be resized in height by steps of the font height by dragging the mouse while holding the [Shift] key down. This ensures no line will be cut.
If you hold the [Shift] key down while you move a window, it will "snap" at most to the other opened windows, or at least will be aligned with them.
