Using the Window menu you can quickly and easily view all open tasks, select a task and close a task. You can also arrange your open tasks by choosing to tile or cascade them. The Window menu is only available after you select a working company.

 

Arranging windows

To arrange your open task windows

  • Choose Window | Tile horizontally to arrange horizontally.
  • Choose Window | Tile vertically to arrange vertically.
  • Choose Window | Cascade to arrange in cascading order.

Tip: An alternative method for switching between tasks is to press Ctrl+Tab to flip through each screen.

Arranging your icons

If you have minimised any Attaché tasks or menus, choose Window | Arrange Icons to arrange the icons neatly across the bottom of your screen.

 

Resizing windows and task/report screens

Attaché uses the standard Windows® approach to resizing windows and screens. You can resize Attaché windows by dragging their borders, and they can be maximised and minimised.

To resize a window, place your mouse cursor on the window's horizontal or vertical border and then click and drag to the desired size. You can resize both horizontally and vertically at the same time by dragging the corner of a window. 

Attaché windows and screens also include Minimise, Maximise and Close icons on the title bar which reduce the screen, increase the screen to fill the window and close the screen, respectively.

Scaling task screens

In addition to regular resizing of screens, you can scale the contents of a screen by pressing the Shift key as you drag the screen border. To scale and maximise the screen, click the maximise button while holding the Shift key.

Automatically scaling task screens to fill window

A user can be set up so that task screens are automatically maximised to fill the area of the application window.

To automatically scale task screens to fill the Attaché:

  1. Choose File | User Preferences to display the User Preferences screen. 
  2. Select the Scale task screens to fill window checkbox. 
  3. Choose Accept (F9) to save your settings and then sign on again for the change to take effect.

Automatically scaling report preview to fit window

When you open a report, the content is too wide to fit within the print preview screen.

To automatically scale reports on opening so that the report content fits within the print preview screen:

  1. Choose File | User Preferences to display the User Preferences screen. 
  2. Select the Scale report preview to fit window checkbox. 
  3. Choose Accept (F9) to save your settings and then sign on again for the change to take effect.
