[SOLVED] How do I restore my IDE Windows
« on: November 09, 2021, 11:25:21 pm »
I appear to have lost pretty much every window of my IDE. The `Window -> Center a Lost Window` is not working. Is there some layout/config file which I can just delete, thus restoring my IDE to normal?

I've got my component pallete and my object inspector, but there is no sigh of my code editor or anything else.
Maybe I should go back to Lazarus 2.0.12. This instability is too stress-inducing 😮

I removed `environmentoptions.xml` from the `.lazarus` folder and my IDE is back to normal. I will have to set up the debugging again but that's not a problem 😉

I think the wise thing to do will be to sort out my debugging options again, and then save a backup copy of `environmentoptions.xml` just in case this happens again.

When I said my IDE was back to normal, I hadn't noticed that my IDE Coolbar was missing. I used the options to re-enable it, upon which it appeared about 4 pixels wide and 100 pixels tall. I've gone back to Lazarus 2.0.12 😉

I'm not sure why you have all these issues as I don't on my Intel Mac mini nor on my M1 Mac Mini.

Should you desire to ever upgrade again, before doing so I would run the scripts (and perform the extra steps) I recently wrote to uninstall Lazarus + FPC - see the Wiki article Uninstalling Lazarus on macOS.
Lazarus 2.3, FPC 3.3.1 macOS 12.3.1 x86_64 Xcode 13.3.1
Lazarus 2.3, FPC 3.3.1 macOS 12.3.1 aarch64 Xcode 13.3.1
