If I close Logos while it's maximized, or save a layout with Logos maximized, it's supposed to open the same way. A recent problem I'm having is that it now opens "maximized" but the position of the window is slightly off. 

In the photo below, you'll notice that the program window is approximately 1mm away from the top edge and 1 mm away from left edge of my laptop screen. 

My solution has been to just drag the window down and then maximize it again - Windows 7 style - but believe it or not, this gets really annoying. (I even went into the program properties and set it to open maximized, but I still get the gap.)

In the photo below you'll notice that the program window is back to normal, without the 1mm gap. 

Is anyone else having this problem? Does it seem like a bug, or am I missing something? 

Thanks!

Wonder if window filling screen without being maximized:

Maximized window lacks active window border:

Also, middle button changes on right side when maximized.

That has happened to me a few times before, but it happens in other apps too, and it seems to have something to do with my display settings. I haven't figured out a consistent way of reproducing the problem. The other day I accidentally knocked the video cable out of my monitor and then plugged it back in again. After that it was in this weird state. But when I rebooted my computer everything was fine again.

When this does happen, if you click the Restore icon, then maximize again, it should reset the maximized size to your full screen size.

Thanks, Rosie. This is what I've been doing, albeit through Window 7 drag and drop feature. I haven't noticed this behavior in any other programs/apps. I'll mess around with my settings this weekend and see what I can do?

There's a bug between WPF 3.5 (used by Logos) that happens with Aero Snap (the Windows feature you're using). Windows can't remember that you had the window maximized. I think that you'll find that if you minimize Logos or restart it that Logos will be restored to non-maximized but still filling the screen mode. If you had the window in another configuration it would return to that. It used to be that the title bar would repopulate above the top of the display, returning to the previous non-maximized state was the workaround that Logos chose.

So, hit the maximize button instead of using Aero snap and Windows 7 should remember that you want Logos maximized.

The official release note for this condition is here: http://wiki.logos.com/Logos_4.2a_SR-3
