This issue arises when you specify New Tab Settings, and override the T/R/B/L Margins to 0.
If you never do this, this prolly doesn't apply to you.

To have more available screen area, whenever I specify "New Tab" for output of a menu command, start process, query, etc., I [almost] always set the following:
newtab1.PNG (11.9 KiB) Viewed 1279 times

Without the margin settings, this is how the upper left of my screen looks:
newtab2.PNG (57.64 KiB) Viewed 1279 times

Setting the margins to 0 (1st pic) results in tighter margins when the grid/form opens as shown here:
newtab3.PNG (62.13 KiB) Viewed 1279 times

All is good until the form (in this case) gets redrawn (by just doing a Save and not closing the form, or running a process/panel operation that causes a refresh).

So Editing a record in the above grid brings up a form like this, in a New Tab with tight margins:
newtab4.PNG (33.91 KiB) Viewed 1277 times

Under default conditions, then it redraws to this:
newtab5.PNG (31.3 KiB) Viewed 1277 times

The most annoying part of this to me isn't the extra margins, but the screen "jumps" to the right and lower when it redraws, because the margins change.
Been like this for years and I finally decided to fix it.

A simple CSS fix is all thats needed.
In your Properties of the FORM (not the Section), add a class like this:
newtab6.PNG (2.9 KiB) Viewed 1277 times

And add this simple CSS line somewhere in your system (the How & Where has been covered here many times before).
Code: Select all/* Force 0 px margins for Forms */
.margin_0 {
margin: 0px!important;

The name "margin_0" can be changed to anything you want.
After saving the CSS, remember to hold SHIFT down while you refresh your browser.

I'm kinda surprised no one has commented on this.
I'm adding this to almost every form where I have a SAVE button and I stay on the form after SAVE.
