I suspect the reason you aren't getting many answers is because no one
else has seen this. I know I never have. You may have already tried it,
but here is what I would do:
Throw away your entire Rev installation. Reinstall from a
newly-downloaded copy off the web site.
Do not install any extra plugins; leave the installation in its virgin
state. Create a new stack with a single button. Select the button and
open the inspector and check its size.
In the button, add this script:
When you click the button it will generate an error. See if the error
dialog is the correct size.
If these windows are normal size (and if they aren't, I haven't a clue
why not,) then the resizing problem is probably related to a specific
stack you are working on, or a script in a stack in use (i.e., a plugin)
or a backscript. I can't imagine any other reason for this bizarre
behavior. Something is resetting the default window sizes.
Corruption is highly unlikely (and very rare in Revolution) and of the
handful of corrupted stacks I've seen, they always crash or refuse to
open. Occasionally a bad image import will cause a problem, but that
also usually crashes.
Well, I downloaded a fresh Rev copy then foolishly opened one of my existing
stacks and my problems persisted. I don't have any plugins, substacks,
frontScripts or backScripts. The oversize windows are a problem on all my stacks. I
appreciate Ken Ray's input. I have a preOpenStack handler for all my stacks and
it resizes each stack. I changed it to a openstack handler. Then I remembered
I used a "Start Using stack handler" it was causing the same problem as Ken
had suggested with substacks. When I eliminated the conflict in the openstack
of the "using" stack my problems vanished! Hurray! I knew there had to be an
answer. I really appreciate the help. This newbie needs a lot of hand holding.
