Thanks for your reply. It is the main window, the one wherein the source 
text is edited.
I have set in Settings>Preferences>Interface>Interface Layout="Floating 
Then I can reduce the height of the floating edit window to my liking 
but the smallest width is 1175 (as measured by making a screen print of 
the window). That I would like to be 1024.
Does that answer the question in your remark?
