I like your suggestion, Phil.
In the meantime, I just designed this layout, which seems to work OK:
At the bottom is a SD window of a saved document "My Scratch Pad.scpt"
- saved to the SD Scripts folder
- Title bar turned off
- Results panel turned off
- All to minimize space used and minimize distractions
I've set SD6 prefs to "Remember open scripts" on startup. So, I'll always leave My Scratch Pad open when I close SD, and it is opened automatically for me next time.
So far, so good. But if I close all other windows, when I open SD6 I have to create a new document window. ⌘N does this, but then it does NOT have the Title bar showing. So I have to manually show it.
None of this is that difficult. I'm sure I could write a script to open SD6 with the windows as I want them. Currently I am using LaunchBar (LB) to open SD6, and most of my other apps. I'm sure I can train LB to run a my SD setup script when I type "SD".
