new monitor, FH docs won't open full screen - Macromedia Freehand

Not to brag, but I just got an Apple 23" monitor. Only problem is when I create a new Freehand doent, it opens at the old full screen size. Same with any old doent I've got...if I hit the green expand button, it goes to full screen, but when I save, close and reopen it, it opens in the old size. I've already tried creating a new version of my default template with it opened at full screen, but same thing. Nothing will reopen at the new full size. I could try trashing the prefs to see if that works, ...

    Default new monitor, FH docs won't open full screen

    Not to brag, but I just got an Apple 23" monitor. Only problem is when I create
    a new Freehand doent, it opens at the old full screen size. Same with any
    old doent I've got...if I hit the green expand button, it goes to full
    screen, but when I save, close and reopen it, it opens in the old size.

    I've already tried creating a new version of my default template with it
    opened at full screen, but same thing. Nothing will reopen at the new full size.

    I could try trashing the prefs to see if that works, but I was wondering if
    anyone else has had this problem and has figured ot a workaround...

    Other info...Not that it likely matters, but I have all my palettes on a
    second monitor. I'm running Freehand MX 11.0.2, Mac OS X 10.4.1.

    The expand button is only a toggle between the last two sizes used. You'll
    need to drag the bottom corner of the window to set it.

    To save the window size with each doent, check FH Preferences>Doent>
    'Remember window size and location'
     

    Did you save the template after dragging the lower right corner of the
    window?
     

    Nice. Very nice.
     

    Hmmm, I'm on 10.3.9. There might be an issue with window size with OS
    10.4.1. Have you seen the current known issues with Tiger?

    Excellent, you're beautiful! I hit the expand button, dragged the corner out
    and back a few pixels to put it in the right place, saved the template, and now
    it works perfectly, opening full screen each and every time.

    I also tried it on an existing doent doing the same thing and it worked. It
    seems like a bit of a pain, but at least I know what to do now.

    Many thanks!
