The Master xmh Window

When you start xmh running, it opens a main window. I call this first main window the master window. There are two important differences between the master window and other main windows:

  1. Geometry settings affect the master window differently from all other windows. See the Sections Command-line Settings and TocGeometry.
  2. Using the Close Window command (on the Folder menu) in the master window terminates xmh. But xmh won't terminate if you have other main windows open -- you have to close them first.

    If you have another main window open and use its Close Window command, only that window will close.
