Bug? Restore window after moving maximized windows to other monitor

Hi there,

after having maximized a window on display A and moved it to display B (click on window title bar), restoring the original window size (either via windows context menu "restore" or the appropriate button on the upper right button bar of each window) won't resize the window correctly as it was before maximization but just make it a few pixels smaller.

Does anyone else experience this strange behaviour?

Its just how it works. I don't believe that is even changeable.

Yes, that is the way it's works, but it's not correct in my opinion. If one maximizes a window and restores its size afterwards, one expects it to have the previous size in terms of usability. Everything else is irritating and, I for one, experience this as extremely annoying. It would be great if the author could comment on this, please.

The problem is that, in order to move a maximized window from one monitor to the next, you have to un-maximize it first. This is what changes the remembered un-maximized state. Jon can certainly explain further, whether or not it's an easy fix...

Actually I was thinking about it, and it can be fixed, but definatly look tackier than it currently does. An option would suffice. Its as simple as instead of restoring to max size, its a plain restore, I'm sure its possible.

This is, unfortunately, something I had to compromise on. The window has to be moved to the new monitor before it can be maximized, so restoring to the previous monitor isn't reliably possible. Also, if I move the window over and maintain it's size, it is very slow to maximize and appears laggy/sloppy. This is why I size it to be 99% of the monitor size.

I tested it out, just playing it around, and Jon, have you played with that since you made it? With the speed that DF is at it seems to work fine.... And its only about size, not really position. And anyway, this would be an option so the tackyness would be OK, as only the users that really care will use it and they can deal with it.
