I know that when a form is maximised on the target computer, it is X by Y twips large. Can I set the form size at design time on my computer to X by Y twips, so that I am able to design the form components correctly - would this work?

    yes that would work..but you must need to know the screen resolution of the
    computer itself to come-up on your desired size correctly.
