Hello!


I was messing with the JavaScript Editor window and unintentionally pressed Windows + Left Arrow, making the window fill the left half of my screen.

When I try to resize to a smaller size, it just doesn't work. Is there any way to get this window back to normal? It's too big!

(Restarting the program does not solve anything at all.)

 

Thank you.

Try grabbing the lower right-hand corner of the window with the mouse and then drag to resize it.

I'm having the same issue and grabbing the bottom right corner does not work. The window just pops back to a large size.

Any luck with this? It's nearly 10 months later and I'm having the same issue. Neither resizing from the edge or from the little button in the bottom right corner allows me to actually resize the window to a usable size.

The Answer is "Don't use the built-in JavaScript Editor".  It's crap, and it's meant to be that way. Instead, use an external editor.  On Windows, notepad is a simple and fast choice, however, Notpad++ is free and an awesome editor.  On the Mac use BBEdit.

I would normally use Notepad++ but in this circumstance I'm working on a military laptop and unfortunately do not have the option to install external programs. I wish this was only an issue with the editor but also seems to happen to the debugger also. Seems to have been caused by windows "snap" resizing when I was moving the editor and debugger. As a software developer in my civilian job it's quite frustrating running into bugs in programs you have no conrol over. I can't even find a place to report the bug...

Bummer 😞   The debugger sucks worse than the editor.  I never use it. I debug Acrobat JavaScript entirely with the console window.  

However, you do have the regular Notepad on your system?  Use it.
