add a script to the OnFirstWidowOpen event in the File > Options
let the script do a maximize on the window.
Is this a known difference between version 11 and 15? I would hope that the software would behave the exact same way when opening files.
I have 14 applications that I am upgrading and I'd rather not have to modify all 14 applications using the method you describe. But if this is the best practice then I guess we'll have to bite the bullet (thankfully we don't have 140 applications).
I don't think this is a functional difference between 11 and 15. It could be that just remembers from when the file was last opened non-hosted, which would have been right after your conversion from fp7 to fmp12.
It is a good idea though to always have an OnFirstWindowOpen script so that you can take full control over what happens. Since scripts can be pasted, it's a minor undertaking.
I believe it is a functional difference between 11 and 15. All of my V11 applications (in the production environment) always open up in a maximized window... it appears to be the default behaviour. If I "restore down" a window before closing an application, that application still opens in a maximized window when I re-open it.
In addition, all of the converted V15 applications (in the test environment) never open up maximized -- ever. I can open and close them repeatedly and even if I do maximize the window before closing, the window isn't maximized the next time I re-open the application.
You are correct, it's a relatively minor undertaking to write a one-line OnFirstWindowOpen script (or modify an existing one) and then unit test it. It's probably only 10 minutes per application, but 14x10 is roughly two hours of extra effort that shouldn't be required.
