Card Resizes When Reopening

Post by Pip » Tue Aug 20, 2013 6:06 am

Working on the summer school app & have the card size set to the iPad but when I save the stack & reopen it, the card size has been reset to 768 x 788.

Have I missed a step somewhere to stop the card resizing?

Hi,
I think I can answer this one.
I think it due to the fact that you do not have the "disable auto geometry" checked. This is a checkbox on MobGui. If you go back to the first video it was checked right at the beginning.
Hope this helps,
Thanks,
Riadh

Thanks Riadh

The "disable auto geometry" is checked in MobGui & so is the iPad option but when I reopen the stack it is 768 x 788

Mine too; I think it might be because my display is too small to show the whole stack; it seems to resize to the screen height. But if I click on iPad in MobGUI, it usually fixes itself. Sometimes I have to manually enlarge the stack window first (using the MessageBox to make the resize corner accessible), then clicking iPad will snap it to the right size.

"Disable auto geometry" does not seem to make la difference in this behavior.

I might look for a larger display to se e if that helps. The one I have is 23", 1600x900, but it's still not tall enough for the whole stack.

I solved it by using a bigger monitor. Admittedly not a solution that will work for everyone!
