FM 16 Window sizing

 

Mac OS 10.12.4

 

Maybe I am missing something but I have been paying attention to eMails post FM 16 release and who would not want. I have not seen this issue appear.

 

A Solution has over 1200 layouts a mixture of “Forms” & “Lists” all originally designed to have the same “WIDTH:, see screen grabs.

 

Fortunately I have a called Master Script which sets Window sizes and has been working since .fp7 was implemented up to and thru Filemaker 15.

What with FMP16’s new window display implementation this Master script must be tweaked to cross over into Filemaker 16 .

 

 

Following are examples of script calls and window display results

Width is set to the same size but note the clipping on the right edge.
