Restoring Window Settings
MoneyWell takes full advantage of the Restore functionality in OS X Lion and Mountain Lion. When you quit and restart MoneyWell with your document(s) open, all your window sizing, filters, and layout settings are automatically restored.
The Welcome Window
The first time you run MoneyWell, it will present you with a Welcome window. This let's you try the Sample document, create a new document, or open an existing document that you have on your Mac.
If you close all your document windows and click on the MoneyWell icon in the Dock, you will see the Welcome window again. If you quit MoneyWell with one or more documents open, Lion will tell MoneyWell to restore the state of your documents and the Welcome window will not appear.
Why Doesn't My Document Open Automatically?
If your document doesn't open when you launch MoneyWell, check for these issues:
- Clicking Close to Quit - Clicking the red close button in the upper left of a window doesn't close most apps, it only closes a document. A better way to quit MoneyWell is to use File > Quit or press ⌘Q. This allows Lion to record all your window settings and restore them next time.
- Lion Restore is Off - If you have turned off Lion's ability to restore document windows, MoneyWell won't be told what to reopen.
Open Systems Preferences and check the "Restore windows when quitting and re-opening apps" in the General section.
Can I Turn Lion Restore Off for Selective Apps?
Even though Lion doesn't support turning off window restore for selected apps, you can download RestoreMeNot—a cool little System Preference pane that lets you do just that. Make sure to turn on the Lion Restore preference and then install RestoreMeNot. You can then choose which apps you don't want to use restore.
