Is it possible to lock in the position of the control boxes in a project ?

It seems it isn't *confused*

No kidding - These windows drive me nuts...you can't lock them or adjust their size and if you close them you loose their control in the project. There must be a better way.... *stress* *stress* *sleep*

Ok, but MS Windows working frames do have minimize ,restore and they are re sizable. You have frame size adjust in your Camera and Notes controls, thats great. These features would have been very helpful in all of your controls in the EB because your control frames quickly gobble the workspace. I don't know about you or other people using this system but when I'm building projects I'm pushed for space and often move the frames around when adding controls or script, commands etc. In the process, at times I either accidental move or close a frame. Once it's closed can you get it back ? You have the minimize, maximize, resize tabs on your frames but they don't work - it's like working with a sawn off version of windows. The auto scroll feature is nice but my workspace is getting bigger than Texas - I'm scrolling around deep and wide to keep track of what I've got happening in the project. Please take this as constructive feedback. If everyone just sat on their hands and pat you on the back you will not improve ER to the level it needs to thrive. As a customer that has invested over $500 Australian in you I have a responsibility to help develop and improve my investment. It's not a lot of cash but it's a lot of time. Many of us are new to this game and will work through improvement with you. These are not huge things on their own but a lot of time can go into a project and these features would be very helpful on the platform you have chosen to adopt.

Cheers

there is an option to use the smart arrange in the control.double click,
and then save it to your pc and in the cloud.then the windows stay in place.

You can disable auto arrange - that locks the controls. Or, I recommend installing ptp’s plugin. plugins/view/203' target='_blank'>http://www.ez-robot.com/EZ-Builder/ plugins/view/203
