Some of my books, not all of them, have the notes vlew screen split every time I go into that view. I believe the command I use to correct this is /w/r to make the screen whole but it goes back to a split screen everytime I go back to notes view. I don’t what I did but I’ve even tried to “edit put” after I’ve corrected it again but it always goes back to being split. As I said, it’s only in a few of my client’s books. Any way to fix this permanently?
Thanks!January 25, 2005 at 8:00 pm #12707
Are you using the Slash Command / D V N or has someone setup a Macro to switch to the Notes view (Function key)?

I use the command / v n each time but it does’nt matter. Whenever I go into the notes view I have to correct it, if I leave and come back its split again.

Assume you mean’t / d v n.
I’ve never seen that happen on any system. Suggest you try this. Write the following macro:
In procedures press Insert
Call procedure NOTEV
Expand into the procedure and on the Procedure View type:
~DV”N”. ~DO (this will get rid of the split screen)
Then bring up the FKEYS (/ G R) and on Shift F1 type NOTEV

Like Henry, I have never heard of this problem – happening all the time. So I too am at loss to make a suggestions.
The only question I have is – is your Scroll Lock, on or off ?
DavidJanuary 29, 2005 at 9:27 pm #12720
No, my scroll lock is not on. What happens when I go into my notes view on a set books that this happens to, the screen is split and them I have to type the command / w r. This will correct the screen from being split but I now have to cursor over my print to get the full sentences to show. It sort of condenses the letters. Strange, but true! And it’s not happening with all of my books, just a couple of them.
BeckyJanuary 29, 2005 at 9:37 pm #12721
Sorry, it didn’t work. I’ll have to keep correcting it each time I go in but at least it’s a glitch that can be corrected so it’s just an annoyance.
Thank’s for trying,

Ah – since it is a problem in only a “few books” – perhaps the problem books require a reorg?
This is usually the first thing I do when books come from a client, having any strange problems.
DavidFebruary 1, 2005 at 10:13 pm #12723
David is probably correct that reorg may help, but it’s strange that a “couple” of books have the problem. Not sure what kind of damage to the database would cause that kind of problem.
Change the Macro to ~WR rather than ~DO. Actually WR dosen’t actually do anything in NV, but if it fixes your problem so be it.
When you are at the NV Shell, go to Options and check to see that the Screen Size is 25 Line Display. You would only change this if you are running in a Windows screen and want NV to be larger.
Is the your screen split Vertically or Horizontially?
Are you running the NV in Full Screen or a Window screen?

The command /wr is “right a field”.
This may sound crazy but when this happens try /DL and then enter “0”
Even if the notes view does not have fields to lock, it seems to have an effect of locking some of the screen Horizontally.
I see that you are with eastlink. What part on Nova Scotia are you from?
ThomasFebruary 4, 2005 at 4:31 pm #12727
Interesting point. When I tried the /WR it was on a Blank Notes screen. When there was text /WR did seem to split the text (not the screen). The /DL did fix the problem.

Of course you know that this is an “Optical Illusion” –
When you use the /DL it freezes the “tabs” to the left side. and the rest scrolls around. Put some text such as “This is a test of window scrolling” on the left side and on the same line put “XX” on the farthest right sides, and then do /DL 1 with the /WL
And you will see the wrapping effect chop off the left text and move it to the right side. It is simply wrapping the internal Video Buffer.
But we can always use the ‘”games” for fun !!

Ok Guy’s lets see if I can explain this right.
Open a set of books
Go to the notes view of a template. The one that I used ~inv2.tpl
Give the command ~DL than enter 5
Re-open books and go to the notes view of the template.
You should see a screen like this link.
Somehow she has given the command ~DL with a number at some point while she was in the notes view.
Solution is to give command ~DL and 0 to reset when you see this screen. New Views remembers a document lock command and has to be reset.

It worked!!! /DL and then “0” It instantly reverted the screen to a whole without the lettering being bunched together. I then tried leaving the notes view and coming back to it but it stayed as a whole screen.
I still don’t know how it happened, I must have locked the windows at some point and didn’t realize it. Thank you so much!
I live on the South Shore, close to Bridgewater, about 100km from Halifax.
PS: Thanks to all who tried to help me with this problem!
