I didn’t even know you could open a file browser within an existing window. I suppose in
that case, the window size can stay the same. I’ll never do it, so I don’t care. :-)
To me it makes more sense to consider the overall
window one unit, not a separate window with a file browser adjacent to the editor window.
Perhaps my preference doesn't conflict with yours after all, you would just have to
close the file browser first before hitting new file I guess, but I think they do, you are
pretty much saying the file browser and the editor should be separate. I prefer them as
No, I’m fine with them being in a single window. (In fact, I used the Project+ plug-in
with TM1 to achieve this.) All I’m saying that that the size of a *new* window should be
determined by the size of the last used editor, not the size of the last used window.
As it is now, if I’m working in a window with a single file open (no browser) and it’ll
fit 80 characters, then I open a directory in a new window, the editor portion of the new
window will only fit 49 characters or so. It should fit 80. The reverse should also be
true. If I’m working on a project (with a file browser) and the editor portion will fit 80
characters, ⌘N should not give me a new editor that fits 112.
