Not sure if anyone has noted this bug.  In Windows 7 there is a split screen option, where you drag a window to the side and it fills half the screen.  

If I minimize the Logos window after doing this, and then try to bring it back up it does not retain its orientation on the screen.  It almost always ends up pushed off the side of the screen.  I've discovered that if you manually change the size of the Logos window to fit that screen space, it seems to retain that size.  

So there seems to be a bug with the program and this new Windows 7 option.  Logos is the only program I've worked with that has this problem.  And since I'm usually working with a split screen and multiple tabs (and the Windows 7 way of doing split screen is very quick and easy), I would love to see this bug fixed.  

I hope that I've adequately described the problem.  I'd be interested in knowing if others have noticed this as well.

Philip,

I recognized this bug before and can confirm it happens on my system (Windows 7 32-bit Home Premium, Intel Core 2 Duo 1,5GHz, 2GB RAM, ATI Radeon XPress 1250) all the time. We definitely need a fix for that.

So it sounds like it isn't just my computer then.  Is this a problem that would be difficult to fix?  

My Windows 7 is 64-bit Home Premium.  Intel Core2Solo CPU U3500 1.4 GHz (yes, I know, I need a computer upgrade), 4 GB RAM

I have experienced this with other programs. I do not believe it is just a Logos error.

I went through all of my non-microsoft software on my computer.  The only two programs on my computer that failed to maintain their orientation after being minimized were Libronix 3 and Logos 4.

Not saying that I don't believe you that there are other programs with this bug, but this is not a common problem with most software, and is something that should be fixed.

Personally, I don't have any other programs where I have noticed this before, but it might just be that some programs haven't been adapted to this Win 7 feature. Let's hope someone of the Logos programmers sees this. I don't think it should be hard to fix.

Philip Gurgel:
I hope that I've adequately described the problem.
 Your explanation is good, I was able to replicate it.  It is odd isn't it.  I never noticed because L4 is always maximized on my system, but it should be fixable.
