Dear and esteemed Dom,
In very ancient times, six month ago, very friendly, you gave me
a way to change the model saved as « normal.awt » =
> Do not hand-edit this file. Using abiword, change your page
> size to whatever you'd like via the File->Page Setup dialog,
> change your style definitions using the Format->Styles dialog,
> set the background color to grey by using Format->Background,

> Not so hard :-) ~~ Dom
I was not returning on the question because I'm a great lazy old man !
But now, I've a little changed the things : I'm on a Mandrake 8.2, with
AbiWord-1.0.1 (perfect) and I would try to resolve always the same
- my screen displays in 1024x768 pixels
- at opening, AbiWord shows a truncated grey background ( with un-
completed indications on the lowest toolbar ).
- on that grey background, is shown the white page where I will be
able to write, when I will have pushed the grey backword right limit
to the right border, with as first result to obtain a complete plain white
- well! all is correct, I am ready to write !...
In spite of my bad english is it clear ?
What I'm hoping to be able to do ?
To find somewhere the possibility (in options or in a script) to give to
AbiWord the correct instructions to induce it to give me AT OPENING,
and without I have nothing to do, a complete grey background, with
the white page complete at choiced dimensions noted in your file ;-)),
even if that opening-document is not full screen, because I like to have
possibility to click icons on the right of the abiword document...
Is it possible, Doctor, without to kill the patient ?
Is it not too hard :-) ?
