Wouldn't this count for a feature in REV. You know something like "Full 
Screen 800x600" or "Menu Screen 800 x 600" etc. Because I have to 
actually account for the decorations and the menu bar. When actually I 
wanted this window to fit under the menu bar.

Thanks for your help.


PS My mailbox filled and I missed the response from Jacque and any 
others. Were there many?
