Possible dumb user here! A few weeks ago I purchased the "sm_autosize" macro, installed and used it to resize some woodworking templates. Since then I cannot get the macro to work. When I click on the macro, a window should open where I specify the size a reference line should be. However, nothing happens, e.g. no window opens, that I can see when I now click on the macro icon. I'm running on a Win10 PC. Per CD support there is no difference between the student version I got and the full version except in the upper left corner I see "64-Bit Not for commercial use". I'm trying to create some templates to size for a woodworking class.
I've reinstalled the macro but this did not do anything for me. I don't know how to remove the macro to see if reinstalling it after the uninstall will work.
Have you tried to run some other macro - even a simple one such as the "Hello World" sub in this blog post - to see if VBA in general is working?
Wild guess - and I don't know how "sm_autosize" handles this - but have you done any configuration changes going between dual monitors and a single monitor?
Some macros have their userform remember its position on the screen, and can get into trouble going to a different screen configuration where the remembered position is wildly wrong.
I have success.
First I tried reinstalling CD, this did NOT resolve the issue.
Again I tried the modify option and confirmed that VBA was being installed, this did NOT resolve the issue.
I then tried the REPAIR option and this resolved the issue.
Much thanks for the help.
Another macro that can be used for that sort of task is this one: #25 - Macro - "Match Vectors".
It may look more intimidating, but it has some built-in shortcuts (e.g., the "Quick Vectors" stuff) to make it quick and easy to perform some tasks, such as this "simple resize":
According to my observations, students are very problematic. They constantly break something, lose information or do not have enough time to do something. As strange as it may sound, it is. I have the same story. I am constantly on the lookout for useful applications and services that can make my student life easier. I recently found a service https://www.essaygeeks.co.uk Now I have fewer problems. I partially got rid of student tasks that I could not cope with. Perhaps my find will be useful to you too.
