when i make a new window to let me see a list from another layout
the main layout became small
i need the main layout be big as it is and the list when i press the button appear to me small
any help ??
thanks a lot
There is a trick to minimise the effect. Resize the main window to nearly the same height as your desktop height less around 40 pixels.
This works fairly well:
Height: Get(WindowHeight) + 38
Width: Get(WindowWidth) + 12
Distance from top: -32
Distance from left: -4
Add this script step before your "new window" script step, then re-maximise the main window when you return to it
Those dimensions aren't perfect, the window "chrome" on different versions of windows is different, and different again when you use windows remote desktop to access windows, but it's mostly correct to make the window behind to still look fullscreen.
- make sure, the 'Layout Setup' for "visit list" is set as
Views = List View
- for your script,
#5 goto Layout
=> #6 View as [View as List]
This is due to the window management on Windows. It will go away in the next version.

thanks for your help
Views = List View (i already do that)
but i didn't work
must be a minor issue we just won't see yet. How is the List layout built? The Layout Part "Body" is supposed to be set to the height of 1 row/line.
insert script step
#7 Show All Records
You can also upload a screenshot of your "List" Layout in Layout Mode.
my problem is not the list
my problem is the main layout minimized i didn't need that
There's nothing to do about it now, it's standard Windows behavior. Just wait for the next version of FM, it is imminent.
What version of FileMaker?
Do you have windows maximized?
filemaker pro 15 advanced
windows 8 enterprise
And do you have windows maximized when you open the new window?
