Title

Opening New Window

Post

[FMA 10.0v1 / OSX 10.4.11 PPC]

 

Ever since I first started using FileMaker Developer, then Advanced, I have successfully used the New Window script step in various situations.

 

Since moving to FMA 10, however, something does not work properly.

 

I typically specify the position and size to open in roughly the center of the screen, but windows routinely open at Top=0, Left=0. Sometimes, the window honors the height and width I specify; sometimes the height is as if I had specified 0, but as soon as I start to manually resize it, it jumps to the proper height. So far, for the sake of expediency, I have just added a Move/Resize Window step, which does work properly.

 

This behavior manifests in every solution in which I use New Window. If it's a bug in FMA10 or a quirk in OSX, I would expect someone to have noticed it before now. So, I am assuming it's something in my computer (which is scary, I'm just not accustomed to such an odd behavior from a Mac).

 

So, the question: has anyone else seen this?
