[chirp_users] MacOS - Chirp Windowing Misalignment

David and Charley - Thanks for the information.

I am (somewhat) glad to hear that the behavior is not exclusive to my 
Mac's.  One is a Mini and the other Macbook Pro and only the latter had 
the Prolific Drivers installed.

Full screen does work correctly but as I as copying/pasting between 
applications, I kept resizing which leads to the pointer tracking 
problem.  I wonder if the window size needs to be some integer multiple 
or similar?

Regards,
Jerry - WB9MRI
