An editing question... 5 Years, 7 Months ago  
Sorry in advance if this question has been answered/asked before.

I'm wondering if there is a way to edit the main Rainmeter.ini so that when I start a custom config, everything pops up at a certain x,y axis. Instead of 0,0.
I've made my own custom config, and I want to offer it as ready as possible. Meaning: Install/extract, load .ini, everything gets placed on the desktop at certain spots, and not all in one corner.

Thanks!

Making changes to the rainmeter.ini file isn't advised since it contains the user's settings. If you need to do it you could create a simple script which adds the settings for your config to the end of the rainmeter.ini file.

Thank you for the reply! While waiting, I found another way (with help) to do it as well, by making a resolutions folder within my config, and doing the !RainmeterMove and !RainmeterActivate and calling my config names and .ini's. Which has provided to be much easier to work around without screwing with the original rainmeter.ini file.
Thank you for also explaining another way!

I would be interested in seeing your work. I'm working on a project where I'll eventually need to do something like that.

As soon as I finish what I'm working on, it will be available for download!

That is where my config is.
That is the original, and I plan on making it into a config where all of it can be downloaded at once, and placed just like that.
