My layout display is so large that it is necessary to use the bottom and side bars to see the complete screen. How do I get the display size down to a manageable size? Also how does one design a layout for dfferent resolutions. I suspect that may be the problem, but don't know how to go about changing it.
What resolution do you have your monitor set for? There are two basic layouts provided, one sized for 600 x 600 and the other for 1024 x 768. ACT! Initially defaults to the 1024 x 768 resolution layout but you can change to the 800 x 600 which should resolve your problem unless you have the screen resolution set to 640 x 480.
