Re: Gnumeric Preferences?

I have a few questions I'm hoping someone can help me with.  I have a
large spreadsheet that I use regularly with Gnumeric and I would like to
be able to open it automatically to the proper size.  So my questions

1) Is it possible to make Gnumeric remember the size of a spreadsheet
that it has opened before?

In the 1.1.x branch gnumeric opens a spreadsheet to the window size it was when last saved (with the proviso that it uses minimum and maximum widths and heights, ie. a very small window is probably wider when it is reopened.) I would suspect that this is also true for the 1.0.x branch.

2) Ordinarily, I would look for the answer to the first question in an
application's preferences file, but I can't find one in Gnumeric's
menus.  Does this exist?

THe 1.1.x branch has a preference dialog, the 1.0.x branch does not. In the former you can specify the default window size (as a fraction of the screen size) for new spreadsheets or non-gnumeric sheets.

3) How can I get Gnumeric to automatically open with a particular
spreadsheet?  Will this syntax work on the command line:
# gnumeric /home/User/Documents/docname.gnumeric

It should.
