FMP 11.0v4 on Mac OS Lion. When a close a window it may or may not (usually not) reopen to the same size and configuration in which I left it.


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

Mac OS Lion

Description of the issue

I have several data bases which I designed. I set them to open to a certain size so I can see the entire form I have created and easily add data. Since upgrade to Lion - - and only under Lion - - when I close a window and or quit FMP, later to reopen it - the window resizes itself. Often it is smaller than my form so I have to again resize it to enter data, and sometimes it resized to larger size in which I see a bunch of "white space" around the right and or bottom sides.

This is new conduct under Lion. I have been using FMP in many versions over at least a decade and I don't recall this happening before.

The conduct is also not 100% consistent. There are times I open a data base window and find that it has, in fact, retained the size at which I previously set it. Go figure?
Can you please let me  know if there is something I can do so that each data base I open opens to the size in which I have left it?

Thank you for your help.

Steps to reproduce the problem

Use data base, close window and/or quit FMP.  Reopen window

Expected result

I expect it to open in the size I left it, that is to say, my entire form visible and no white space around it.

Actual result

May or may not open in a different size.

Resize window virtually every time I open one.
