1. why we cant avoid calls, and would dark byte implement such suggestion?
- i know we can step over, but this include jumps while i want only to step over calls not jumps.

2. why tracer window doesnt have (maximize window option)
- of course everyone can resize it manually but it helps a lot and save time.
specially for most lazy people like me.

1. It doesn't step over jumps, it can't because there's no way to know when a jump "ends" unlike a call. Here's an example from the tutorial, step 2. It's stepping over the calls so you don't get any information about the instructions inside them but you can clearly the code that ran after the jne, if the jump is not taken then you'll see the instructions from 6B+ instead of the instructions from D0


Remember break and trace only tells you about the instructions that actually ran



2. no idea. lol but you could play around with some lua code like this to maximize them on command
Code:
for i=0,getFormCount()-1 do
  local f = getForm(i)
  print(f.getClassName())
  if f.getClassName() == 'TfrmTracer' then
    print(f.Top, f.Left)
    local ow,oh = f.Width, f.Height
    local waw, wah = getWorkAreaWidth()-25, getWorkAreaHeight()-35
    f.Width, f.Height = waw, wah
    f.Left = math.min(waw+30,math.max(0,f.Left-(f.Width-ow)))
    f.Top = 0
  end
end
note that it doesn't really understand multiple monitors but it seems ok on my 2 monitor setup. I did play a bit with form.BorderIcons and FormStyle that I found via google but that didn't seem to add min/max buttons so I shifted to the above instead which I was fairly certain would work.
