Customising size of edit pane

How do I change the default size of the edit window? I assume this would be done in a template file, such as edit.pattern.tmpl.

I see that you can drag the bottom right hand corner to change teh size of individual endit windows, but I would like to do this globally.

Please advise where the size fo this window is set.


Hi Tamsin,

It seems we haven't documented this very well, it's mentioned in your System.DefaultPreferences - you can override the defaults there by reproducing them in Main.SitePreferences, here are some example values, feel free to adjust for your own needs:
   * Set EDITBOXWIDTH = 100
   * set EDITBOXHEIGHT = 120

Note, with recent versions of Foswiki, the javascript controls (lower right corner of edit window) take precedence over the EDITBOX* settings. They will be ignored once the edit box size has been written to the FOSWIKIPREF cookie.
