I had thought Bob was referring to FB^3 itself; hence my "simplistic" suggestion!

It's been so long since I've begun a new application from scratch that I assumed
"everyone" has a basic Resource File that includes Size and Bundle Resources,
along with a few basic Icons, Menus, etc..

Doesn't FB^3 have a Resource "Template" with which all applications begin? If the
Size Resource hasn't dedicated adequate memory, will FB provide error messages
similar to the one(s) to which Bob has referred?

In fact, this is a very interesting topic. How do you determine - except by the
"trial and error", "guess and by golly methods" I've been using - the minimum and
preferred sizes to put in the Size Resource?

Anyone have a good suggestion about this? A good way to start Sunday Morning!
