    We have a few of THESE and even more of THESE monitors.
    At the moment I'm using two 1.5MP portait screens.

    I'd go for the user being able to optionally expand the size, long time believer in design that is maintained across browsers and screens from working with web sites. The ability to up scale text would be a very nice option, a 10 point font might be a bit on the small size for some, good for a tablet though.

    There is no magic solution for this - you need to control the position of the objects via script in this case. If you use the auto-resize functions, the objects will resize in the same proportion as you resize the width and/or height of the application window, meaning that you not necessarily will keep the original aspect ratio. As a starting point, you could look at my sample projects, however you will need to make further changes to the provided code.

    Thanks Shrek ;-) some success with video but I have other elements - for example about 7 paragraphs of text to the right hand side of the video window - which I would like to keep aspect and position relative to the video as the window is resized - I have tried (all i think) combinations of the top/bottom/right/left and none keep the text as it is laid out.

    You dont necessarily check all 4, try Right & Bottom.

    Hi Shrek - yeah i tried that on the video for example - checked all 4 options (left/tight/top/bottom) - as I stretch the window the video goes to the bottom right of the screen - it loses its place altogether - what i am trying to achieve is the video getting larger and anchored in relative position to other objects - all I have managed to do is move the video window - and not relative either :-(

    Each object has 4 check boxes for resizing, the check boxes are are on the object attributes tab when you double click the object.

    Sorry to keep adding to thread - so progress so far is that I can make window resizable/moveable - but i would like all elements to keep relative position but increase in size as window gets larger.

    Thinking about it an auto detect approach might be better . . . an help / pointers on how to invoke auto detect greatly appreciated y

    I can make the project window resizable and moveable - what are bed commands to use to ensure the assets on the page increase in proportion to the actual window - currently use text graphics and video and would like them to increase in size in line with how user stretches window or uses maximise button

    Thank you Ulrich - is their code to do this built into AM8?

    You could make the project resizable, either allowing the user to manually set the desired window size, or add code to adapt the application window size according to the detected screen resolution...

    Dimensions of Project (Page Size)

    I am a little stuck as where to begin thinking how best to accommodate a wide range of users in terms of laptops (widescreen) - regular office screens - 27" iMacs - and so on . . . .

    I think most of the users will have widescreen but if I set a page size say at 1280 x 720 whilst looking great on a laptop widescreen it looks very small on a 27" iMac.

    Can someone please offer advice/solution or way forward?

    thanks
