Is there support for the customization of TextWindow sizes so that when the window is opened, it opens to a specific size? This is really just out of curiosity. Any and all comments are appreciated!

Nope, only what's in the API docs for TextWindow, and it's currently fixed to creating a new window of 400 x 300 pixels. An additional pair of arguments for could be easily added to control it, but the current GTK-based GUI is being phased out with a Qt one replacing it, and that might not end up having the same API exactly.

Thanks! I'm interested to see what the Qt GUI will be capable of when it is implemented.

The Windows 1.12 versions include the Qt version, currently this is in rc, but the release should be out soon.
