Resizing background window when resizing foreground window
I have a problem with "resizing window to fit" under Windows.
My main lay outs are all in one window, and this window is "maximized". All works fine.
But for printing I open a second window in "Print preview" mode, and give a "resize to fit" (for the second foreground window) so the user sees exactly what he or she is printing. The problem under Windows is that this "resize to fit" also resizes the background window. And I can't get it solved. The second window is a "floating window", but also when the second window is a "modal window", the same problem occurs.
I already gave an extra "maximize window" and "freeze window" command before opening the floating window, but this doesn't help. As soon as I use the "resize to fit" command, the foreground window as well as the background window are resized.
I know the Windows system needs a screen that is set to "100%" otherwise there are sizing problems. So the system screen is set to 100%.
On my Mac I don't have this problem.
Anyone an idea what the problem is?
Thanks in advance,
My problem is solved. Well it is not solved, but I found other posts related to this issue.
The resizing problem is a Windows problem and I will find a workaround like PhilModJunk suggested,
