      Summary

      Incorrect Window Sizes on 2nd Monitor

      Product

      FileMaker Pro

      Version

      FileMaker Pro Advanced 11.0v4

      Operating system version

      Mac OS X 10.7.4

      Description of the issue

      When using multiple monitors with a MacBook Pro the Get ( WindowDesktopHeight ) function returns incorrect results and the Adjust Window [Resize to Fit] script step results in the Window being drawn partially off-screen. Users are then unable to move the window or access the toolbar manually.

      Steps to reproduce the problem

      MacBook Pro with 2nd external monitor. Open FileMaker Pro Advanced 11.0v4 and then open database on the external monitor. MacBook Pro is positioned to the left of the external monitor. The external monitor is the main monitor.

      Manually create a 2nd window using the Window menu>New Window command and then move this to the MacBook Pro display. Perform a script that includes the Adjust Window [Resize to Fit] script step - the window will now be only partially visible and has moved up off the top of the display, as though it is trying to line up the top of the window with the top of the main monitor.

      Get ( WindowDesktopHeight ) returns 1178 for a window on the main monitor and 1200 for a window on the MacBook Pro display. Resolutions are:

      External monitor: 1920 x 1200
      MacBook Pro:  1440 x 900

      Expected result

      Window on the MacBook Pro is not positioned off the top of the display.

      Actual result

      Window on the MacBook Pro is positioned off the top of the display.
