In the Pro-E screen how to limit the number of lines in the message area? In the picture below, as you can see there are 4 lines and I want it to be, say, 2 lines, ALWAYS!!

Every time I adjust this, and open a new window after that, its back to 4 lines.. Just annoying (I got my tool bars messed up by this).. Is there a config option are something to set this??

add the following option in config.pro file

visible_message_lines 2

your config.pro file should be saved in the text directory of your ProE installation.
