Remember dialog dimensions

With this setting, the size of dialogs in the Intrexx Portal Manager will be retained if you have changed the size and it therefore deviates from the standard dimensions.

Only when larger than the default dimensions

The new dimensions will only be saved if they are larger than the default.

This link contains the placeholder ${release_track}, which is automatically replaced by the currently used Intrexx version, and ${locale}, which is automatically replaced by the currently used language.

"${csh-target}" is a parameter that controls the table of contents and direct context-sensitive help that you open by pressing the F1 key.
