Hello!

Tracker does not full screen beyond ~2340x1275 pixels in a 2560x1440 monitor.

is there on option to unlock this? it seems no windows arrows appear to resize manually the window beyond the aforementioned resolution.

the version of ~September 2017 (cant recall version #) full screened normally with maximize window button.

*edit. maximize button "locks" the arrows and tracker window size to smaller resolution. if tracker is not fullscreened arrows appear and i can set manually tracker window to cover the whole screen.

Nothing in Tracker itself has changed, the sizing behavior is entirely determined by Java and the OS. Have you tried opening the earlier version in your current configuration to compare? (Edit|Preferences, go to Runtime tab, choose an earlier Tracker version and relaunch; if you have no earlier version download a jar from the tracker website and put it in your Tracker home first).  Doug

ok, did as instructed. earlier version did not resolve the issue.

then i updated java to latest version. restarted tracker same results non fullscreen window.

i edited in the preferences the default icons size, from +1 to default restarted and this resolved the issue. tracker full screens with the maximize button.

reverted back to +1 to see if the issue returns, but i could reproduce the error. seems something in java was reset and now everything works ok.

thank you
