Default Some Questions (Locked window positions?)

I have been fiddling with a lot of the new UI stuff and I have run across a few idiosyncracies. I was wondering if anyone out there has a solution:

1) The chat window seems to either lock in the bottom right or bottom left corner if you place it on the bottom, no matter what you specify your x coord as. X coord less than about 50 locks it in left corner, greater than 50 locks it in right corner. I want to be able to place it near the center of the screen on the bottom, and not have to reposition it everytime i /loadskin after making a mod to my xml files.

2) The Group window also seems to be buggy, this time in the Y coordinate. I have it stuck at the far right of the screen and i want to place it at approxiamately 115 on the Y coord, but once I go below 68 for the Y coord, it moves down to 135. Again this makes me move the window anytime i /loadskin to check an update I have made on my networked laptop (I edit on my laptop and /loadskin on my main comp so I can see my mods as I go)

3) Is there a way to set certain windows to not appear by default, ie the window selector and pet windows. As a monk I dont need the pet window, and i'd prefer the window selector defaulted to not show up.

Any info would be appreciated.

my experiences:

1 & 2)
-anytime i modify a ui file the whole ui gets scrambled to defaults
-all my windows stay where i put them unless i change an xml file

i closed the pet window the first time i saw it and have never seen it since. but try this:

in the main eq dir there's a config file called


the ## will be your server number, but who cares. in there look for


if show=0 then, by default, the pet window won't show up.
same thing for the window selector, which is right on top of the pet window

I'm not going to type it all here again but I explain the problem with positioning in the developers help forum.
