comp.soft-sys.sas - The SAS statistics package.
Dear SAS-L'ers, Recently I installed SAS 9.1.3 + SP3 & hotfixes and Enterprise Guide 3.02 + hotfix on a new Windows XP workstation and I'm still in the initial get-to-know EG phase. Originally the EG workspace was set up quite nicely, as I remember it, but now I don't seem to be able to make the windows dock, but yet not overlap. They only dock at the top edge and become as wide as the workspace. The documentation leads me to believe they should: "To dock a window, drag it to an edge of the application until it changes shape and then release it." My question: do EG windows actually dock anywhere else than at the top edge or is there something wrong with my installation? (there could be as today EG locked up so that after closing the project, EG wouldn't shut down at all, not through File, Exit and not from the X-button ...) Thanks. -- Mr. Arjen Raateland Finnish Environment Institute SYKE Research Dept. SAS Support phone +358 9 4030 0350
Has anyone seen this problem: the mouse double-click fails to respond in SAS Display Manager under SuSE Linux. You have to furiously double-click to open a file/table etc. Although it seems like a minor problem, it is terribly annoying and has actually led to a medical condition I would have to call "mouse elbow" (quite painful actually). This behavior only happens in SAS DMS, not under the Linux desktop. Changing the mouse double-click interval has no effect. We're running SAS 9.1.3 under SuSE Linux Enterprise Server, KDE 3.0.3.
Has anyone noticed in SAS 9.1 that every time a libname statement is executed, the explorer window changes to that library? I find this extremely annoying. If I point the explorer window to somewhere, I expect it to stay there until I change it. Does anyone know how to stop this?
