Hi Ryno,

Don't understand exactly what you want (Mac old system 8 behaviour?)  
but some guesses:
You can set the rect of your stack as you want by script:

set the rect of this stack to 100,100,500,500 -- 400*400 pixels
set the rect of this stack to 100,100,500,100 -- just the title bar

Have a look at the "How to Change Card Dimensions Smoothly" tutorial:
How to change smoothly the dimensions of any card like in the rev  
property palette.
You can choose the new width, the new height and the duration of the  

As usual, you will access this tutorial through "Tutorials Picker" a  
free plugin that interfaces with the So Smart Software website in  
order to display all available tutorials stacks directly from the web.
You will find it by going to
Revolution/Plugins or Tutorials section.

Best Regards from Paris,
Eric Chatonet
