Is there an "explorer" in EG ?
What follows is tested on SAS Display Manager. (I have sas9.1.3 sp4)
Once you have the explorer in the style you want issue command
The settings are saved in sasuser.profile, so ensure you
always open the same sasuser for your preferred SAS development
The layouts of docked and "undocked" explorers are stored in
different sasuser.profile entries. Docked layout is saved as
dmsexp.wsave. Many undocked explorers may be open. Each can
have its own settings.
The first undocked explorer wsave info is stored in
The next in explorer_3.wsave.
This might be really useful if you want more than one explorer
open with different views.
There is a setting in tools/options/preferences general tab
save settings on exit
This may make the issue of wsave commands unneccessary, because
they seem to be part of the settings that are saved. I prefer
to switch off "save settings on exit" so that each new session
starts in the preferred style.
....... each to their own .....
