You can size the Ae application frame any way you'd like. Drag the lower-right corner.

You can also drag docked windows out of the application frame and have them as floating windows.

Hi Walter - thanks for your speedy reply ...

... thats pretty much what I thought but am wondering if there is a prefs setting or someting that gets it to match the screen resolution ....

............ the problem I am having ATM is that the app is displaying bigger than the physical screen size so I cant get hold of the bottom corner to change anything ---

Hi Walter

------ once again many thanks -- its now sorted .....

The answer is to open AE -- lower screen resolution via 'start/desktop' which enables display of one of the corners which can then be used to re-size as you described - then put screen res back again and close AE which then opens at the right size......

...... not that you will ever need to know ! ! !


-------------- all the best -----chris --

I should have known: see http://forums.creativecow.net/thread/2/974280 for a blast from the past.

Glad you're sorted, and thanks for responding with the fix!

You're on a Mac, right, Chris? Try clicking the Maximize button (the +, third dot in in the upper left corner of the Ae window).
