    Question A program that lets you configure a window when it pops up
    When working in certain programs on my mac, you can open up a window where you can make configurations (e.g. in Word, the 'Paragraph' window) to what you're working with.
    Now, there are windows that I use a lot, I mean a ton, and whenever I open them up, the buttons are not the way I always use them but they change back to the default form decided by the developers of the app.

    So, is there a program that could change that for me. I.e. that, whenever a window opens up, it automatically changes the configurations the way I want them to be?

    Thanks

    You cannot change the layout of specific components in an app, you may only arrange its windows as you want.

    Yes, I'm looking for a third party app that can do that for me.

    What about using or creating templates which you could use indefinitely? Dunno about Word but available in Pages.

    If the shoe fits, buy it in every colour.

    I see what you mean. I used Word just as an example. The actual app is Finale, a music notation software.

    Talk to the developers of Finale and see if they have a solution for you. Not fully understand what you are trying to do, it's hard to provide a generic answer.

    Sue is correct if your goal is to generic template files to be customized later on, but I don't think that's what you are referring to.
