Using SpeechStart Plus, the flags and circles appear half outside of the Thunderbird window lefthand side boundary. I use a UHD monitor. Can anyone else see this problem?

You're only option is to adjust Windows display settings. A default display setting usually works.

The left circles appear outside the boundary of the program. The top circles just fit within the window boundary. I can correct using SpeechProductivity, sizing the box to 98% and then placing the window at the middle of the screen.

I know that Windows uses an "invisible boundary" of 4? 7? pixels on the left side of full-screen windows. I use "Show Flags" with SpeechStart, and when I use a maximized window with Access, the flags hang out past the left edge of the window so that I cannot read them. My solution was to make the Access window not maximized. I shrink the width to 99% or something so that I can read the flags on the left edge. I suppose it has to do with the positions that Windows gives to SpeechStart - most likely Windows is lying to SpeechStart, so SpeechStart draws the flags/circles too far left to be visible. Just my guess.

Thank you, kkkwj, for explaining the invisible space around a maximised window.

 

I reduced Thunderbird to 98% and centralised the window. Now the flags are all visible, however, the drag command no longer works correctly. I can say for instance "drag 56 to 87" and the drag appears to work but the action is not completed. In other words, 56 moves to 87 but 56 is not deposited in 87. If I maximise the window, the drag command works again.

Sterlingtimes,

 

If you send me an image of this Thunderbird page, I will send you commands showing you how to do this more simply/accurately. I will send you a private message with my e-mail.
