Summary

Zoomed List window moves partially off-screen

Product

FileMaker Pro

Version

11.0v4

Operating system version

Mac OS X 10.6.8

Description of the issue

I'm running FileMaker on a Mac with three monitors.  The attached screenshot shows the size and relative positions of the monitors.

The left and right monitors are positioned slightly below the center/main monitor to make it easy to move the mouse cursor into the top corners of the main monitor to trigger MaxMenus and PopChar.

When a List layout window on the left monitor is resized to fit, the window moves off the top of the screen.  The window title bar (with the close, minimize & zoom button) and FileMaker toolbar are off-screen.

Set "Steps" below for the details.

Steps to reproduce the problem

1.  Position a List layout window on the main monitor.

2.  Click the windows green zoom button - the window height expands to fill the space between the menu bar and the top of the Dock.  Get ( WindowTop ) returns "0".

3.  Zoom the window back to its regular size.

4.  Move the window to the left monitor.

5.  Zoom the window to maximum height - the window height expands to 960 pixels (the height of the screen), and the top of the window (title bar + FileMaker toolbar) moves off-screen.  Get ( WindowTop ) returns "-82".

If I carefully position an unzoomed window at the top of the left screen, Get ( WindowTop ) returns "40".

Expected result

The zoomed List window should stay completely on-screen.

Actual result

The zoomed List window moves off the top of the screen.
