Combination of "Preview" and "Resize To Fit" Truncates Page Right and Bottom

FileMaker Pro Advanced 14.0.4

Macintosh OS X El Capitan 10.11.3

iMac (21.5-inch, Mid 2011)

 

Data-entry screen uses Top Navigation part, which means I don’t get to see page margins (even tho it was set up to do so before I added the Top Navigation part). I go from there to an output screen which ALSO has a Top Navigation part, but I then issue a “Resize To Fit” command and have it go into Preview mode. It resizes to fit the Browse version of the screen but not the Preview version, which has the right edge and bottom cut off. The Preview version DOES show the desired page margins (but not all of the desired page content).

 

How to replicate: Works this way 100% of the time.

 

Workarounds: I was thinking that maybe I could turn off the Page Margins option under the View menu, but it’s grayed out so I can’t get at it, so that didn’t work. I ended up hard-coding (ick) the page dimensions with a "Move/Resize Window" command to 834 points high by 630 wide, so now it shows the whole page in Preview mode but ends up oversized for when I revert to Browse mode and the page margins vanish once again.
