There is always the risk that I have still not grasped the full extent of
the subtleties but that may in itself be reasonable feedback, the aim is
presumably not to defeat the user.

If I set 80 in Mode Choices then that is the default for all new or
subsequent windows, views that is. If I individually alter the width some
views from their lower toolbars then those over-rides only apply to those
views and Mode Choices should still show the default 80 no matter which view
Mode Choices is accessed from and no matter what that view is actually

Mode Choices is an independent window, once opened there is no way of
knowing what the parent view was.

Put another way, if I want to be baffled I can always use Zap.

Hope that helps.
