H.U.D. - Windowed mode resize issue (no WinEQ or ISBoxer)

I have a 1680 x 1050 monitor and launch my toons with MQ2Autologin. This is generally a great option as I tend to launch individuals, or sub groups, or all sorts of combinations that I would otherwise have to alter a script to do (for example using a batch or powers hell file).

My one gripe, though, is that when I tab away from my main toon to look at a browser (e.g. this site, or eqresource etc), when I come back the "main chat window" seems to raise by about 50 pixels, which skews everything (mainly target and HoTT. Now it's not a show stopper, but it's a repetitive task to keep correcting it (normally I have to "maximise" the EQ window and fiddle with the main chat window). Does anyone else experience this, or have a fix? It seems a bit OTT to shell out for ISBoxer just for this issue.

Have you tried to lock the window? Right-Click, Window, Lock?
Yes, tried that. It doesn't make a difference. Same thing happens with my hot buttons too but I have them a bit higher than the bottom of the window so it's slightly less annoying.

Yeah, i have a similar issue with my group window (and the add-in buttons, like "Come to Me"). That window opens up squished on the bottom such that the buttons are over the top of the experience bar. In my case, I think its the UI I am using. Sparxx. Either way, every time I launch my toons, I have to resize it on all six. Mildly annoying. I think I could edit the UI XML file; but I don't know for sure. (never messed with them before)

You're on the right track. I had to do this too. you'll find height and width settings for the window, just play around with them until you get something that fits.

Have played EQ without Innerspace for years but does alt + enter not work? My guess, based on absolutely nothing, is it’s confused about weather to run in full screen or windowed mode. I bring up Innerspace because full screen there does not me full screen in Windows. Alt + Enter is the universal shortcut for full screen/window toggle.
