My layouts include an open CBV window to make reduce keystrokes (in lieu of L3's system tray icon for CBV). Each time I use L4.1 RC2's CBV, the size & location of my defined CBV window is changed. It's almost as if my layout's window is deleted & a new window created. Each new window created appears to be placed at the same pre-defined screen location & sized to the same preset size .

If I resize & position the new window, the next use of a Smart Tag to invoke CBV will delete the new resized / located CBV window & establish yet another new window at the same size & place.

This behavior is unexpected & appears to be a bug.  

In addition to maintaining the layout's size & location for the CBV window, I'd also like to switch the focus to the CBV window. Though the window comes up "blinking", the focus remains in Word.

Thanks for listening!

Grace & Peace,
Bill

With CBV in a repositioned, resized floating window the Smart Tag CBV option establishes a replacement window with default size in the default location! Are you sure you meant "same size and place"?

Hi Dave,

Thanks for clarifying... No matter how I sized or placed it, it always went back to what looked like the same screen hog (giant window, about 3/4 as large as my whole L4 main window), positioned about the same spot as it had created the last new CBV window.

Is yours doing the same?

Grace & Peace,
Bill

Yes, it goes back to being a screen hog!

Thanks, Dave.

Given that I've defined a screen size for it in the layout, then that's unexpected behavior.

Grace & Peace,
Bill

This (edit) may be fixed in the next beta. When there is no CBV window open, the smart tag will open CBV in a new window.  If CBV is open, it will keep the existing one in place.
