I've got a weird display problem with flash cs3.  I use dual screen to work. So when I open the action script window,  the window is bigger than my display if it's not docked. So i'm missing some code in the bottom of the window I see the scroll bar but not completely . I cannot resize the window since I can't grab the bottom of the wiindow. If I dock the window It stays collapsed.
Annyone has a clue?
Thank you

i assume your dual monitor set up is 'side by side' (a very wide workspace)

if so, change that so that your dual monitor set up as 'up and down' (giving you a very tall workspace), then you should be able get to the bottom of the actions panel and grab the lower right corner and pull it up to a size that will work when you switch your monitors back to side by side.

clicking restore down and up does'nt help.  The main program window has no problem. Its the action script window only that has a problem.

Maybe check the registry

 HKEY_CURRNET_USER\Software\Adobe\Flash9  

and see if the coordinates are sotred there

(Windows I assume)

Resolved my problem,
By docking the action window on the side of the scene it has reset its size. Don't ask me why.
I've tried to move the window in the second screen and it worked. Same thing if I dock it on top of the scene.
