Windows resizing in Windows


FileMaker Pro



Operating system version

Windows XP, Vista, Win 7

Description of the issue

Loss of window maximisation on changing screen or returning to a window after closing another window.
I get the two blue window headers ie one for the application and one for the file.
I have to suffix every navigation script with the "maximise window' step.
If a new window is popped up ie a small scripted find screen, the application remember the size and changes the /default' size to that smaller window.
This has been an issue on FileMaker for Windows since the very first day.
I have been writing FM databases  since 1990 and this drives me up the wall.
If I keep asking will it get more attention?

Steps to reproduce the problem

Maximise a screen, then pop up a new smaller window and then close it again, the original window behind has shrunk, obscuring screen elements

Expected result

I want my original window to stay maximised

Actual result

the windows loses maximisation and show the two window headers ie one for app, one for the document.
On Mac OS X, this has never been a problem
