Form window ignores saved size on open

Post by Panaiotis82 »

I cannot get my form windows to open to the size that I saved in the edit mode...well, they open to the correct size, but then expand to a larger different size: maybe a default size? Is there a way to change this behavior?

OO is working properly

Your OS is overriding OO

Perhaps this will help

Unfortunately, this did not help. What's interesting to me is that OO Base form windows and edit boxes behave differently than all other OO modules: writer, calc, etc. To me, this suggests that there may be incorrect function calls being used.

Actually, Base Form documents are Writer pages. That allows one to create stand alone forms where the user can display and edit database records without directly opening the Base file.
