Questions and possible bugs found with PowerShell Studio GUI.

Post by cogenc » Fri Apr 08, 2016 7:05 am

Product, version and build:
32 or 64 bit version of product: 64-bit
Operating system: Windows 10
32 or 64 bit OS: 64-bit
PowerShell Version: 5.0

All -

I've noticed that the Console Pane, if unpinned and moved to a separate monitor, does not necessarily resize to the size of the pane. Is there a way to refresh that pane in order to avoid this issue? I also have two additional questions.

1. Is there a way to increase the font size of the Object Explorer or other panes in PowerShell Studio 2016?
2. Is there a way to have an experience more akin to PowerShell ISE using PowerShell Studio 2016? Running code without it being saved by pressing F5 or F8, interacting with the console while writing code, etc.

For the Console Pane, try right clicking on the console and selecting Restart Shell to see if that helps.

As for the Object Explorer, this font setting is pulled from the system settings in Windows so if you modify the setting there it should fix this for you.

As for running without saving, you can use Run Selection (Ctrl + F8) or Run Selection in Console (Ctrl + Shift + F8), but other than that the file must be saved in order for PowerShell to execute it. And lastly, you can indeed use the console to interact with your script as you would in the ISE.
