I have a Dell with Win 7 Home Premium SP1 with a large screen set at 1600X900. Whenever Mandelbulb 3d opens it automatically goes to full size , and the forula and lighting lists aren't visible. clicking their buttons simply makes the top bar blink, and I find i must "restore down" to be able to see the light and formulas dialog "Stickied" nearby on the side. Have you considered having the progrma open so the two windows automatically start out "docked"  in the empty space to the right of the "Image"the right side of the "Image' dialog when it starts in fullscreen, thus allowing everything to be visible at once?

    I have a Dell with Win 7 Home Premium SP1 with a large screen set at 1600X900.   Whenever Mandelbulb 3d
    opens it automatically goes to full size, and the forula and lighting lists aren't visible.   clicking their buttons
    simply makes the top bar blink, and I find i must "restore down" to be able to see the light and formulas dialog
    "Stickied" nearby on the side.   Have you considered having the progrma open so the two windows automatically
    start out "docked" in the empty space to the right of the "Image" the right side of the "Image" dialog when it
    starts in fullscreen, thus allowing everything to be visible at once?

First of all, I have attempted to get Mandelbulb-3D to initially open in a Maximized window state, but it only opens up in the size of the window that it was in when last closed.

However, if you have used the Maximize button to expand the main window to full screen, then close the program, it does reopen the next time filling the screen.   But it does not have the Maximize button engaged, whereupon you may slightly adjust the window size to allow the Formula and Lighting dialog windows to appear on the screen.

Also, do not use the Maximize button immediately after opening Mandelbulb-3D, because it will then automatically add the Formula and Lighting dialog windows off to the right-hand side, which will be off screen if you only have a single monitor.  Instead, use the Formula and Lighting buttons first, which should bring the dialog windows up within the main application window.  After that point you can use the Maximize button to expand the main window.

Why do you have it set to cause Mandelbulb-3D to open at full screen??   Would it not be better to have it open at a set "window" size??

If you prefer to have Mandelbulb-3D open full screen, just make sure that when you close the application that it is not really at full screen but just a few pixels short of that size.  Then there should not be any problems with the Formula and Lighting dialog windows.    cheesy
