I'm pretty sure there's an easier way, but don't have a mac to work out how to do this on that platform.
I do know that you can run a script that uses Move/Resize Window to set the top of the window down lower on the screen. There's a "distance from the top" parameter that looks made to order for this need.
Nice, if I could do scripts.
- Open Manage Scripts.
- Click the new script button.
- Find the Move/Resize Window step and double click it.
- Leave Current WIndow selected.
- Enter a small number such as 10 in the "distance from the top" box.
- Close the script editor, saving the script when asked to do so.
- Close all fileMaker windows except the one that's too high.
- Run your script by selecting it from the scripts menu.
Feel free to ask questions if you have any problems getting that to work.
I've had the same problem with the same specs as you. I've since upgraded to FMPA 11 but I can't say for certain if this changed anything because I've long ago done what Phil has suggested, and triggered the script OnLayoutLoad. It works a charm. I previously posted on this and never got an answer as to what caused the problem or why it should be necessary to script for it, or why it only happens on certain layouts of certain files.
Thanks! Your directions were easily and quickly followed - and did the trick. Only change I needed was to set 40 as the distance value, 10 only did part of the job. . . . Really appreciate your assist.
