Script Step Adjust Window[ Resize to fit ] moves top of window off screen?

I'm working on Mac Book Pro with an Apple Thunderbolt display attached.


When I have two windows open,  one on the Thunderbolt display and the other on the Mac Pro screen.  If I run a script that runs the script step Adjust Window[ resize to fit ] in the window on the Mac Book Pro screen the window moves up so that only the bottom of the screen is showing.


I'm running FileMaker Pro Advanced on a Mid 2012 MacBook Pro OS X 10.10.5

Screen Resolution on both screens is set to Default for Display


The screen arrangement has the MacBook Pro on the left and set a bit lower then Thunderbolt display

Attached is an example database that shows the problem.  To demonstrate do the following:

  1. Set up screens as described above
  2. Open database
  3. Open a new window and set up so that there is one window on each display.
  4. In the window on the MacBook Pro,  click the Refresh window button.

The window should adjust but the top will be off screen.

To get the window back,  click the menu option Window/Cascade Windows.


Thanks for looking at this.
