Hi Joe. I suspect you have a menu assigned to the card. There is a long standing issue with custom menus. Livecode treats the height of the card as the actual height minus the menu (were it visible). Odd I know, but I think they do this to maintain compatibility with Windows, which puts a menu on every window. 

The solution is to have a window resize function called by your openCard handler in the cards that need it. You could even have a window resize function in the main stack that checked for the presence of a custom menu and resized it accordingly. 

As an aside, doesn't anyone find the Windows model a bit odd? I mean where in the real world do you find a window within a window?
