Hi Gregory,

Yes, you should have known ;-) but you didn't really do anything  
wrong. 1024x768 still is a widely used standard and it is wise to  
make sure that a static window fits on a screen with that size.  
Alternatively, make yor stack resizable or group all objects in the  
stack window and give the group scrollbars. You can adjust the size  
of the stack in the preOpenStack script to make sure that  
automatically fits on the screen.

Best regards,

Mark Schonewille
