I keep two programs open side by side on one of my "Desktops." They fit next to each other side by side and filled the entire screen. iCal was one of those applications. Since upgrading to Mountain Lion, the default minimum window size appears to be larger than it was in Lion. Now obscures part of the other application on this desktop.


I've searched around on the internet for hours looking for a way to modify the minimum window size to restore the "side by side" configuration, but I have not been able to find anything.

Does anyone have any advice on how to tackle this?

    I just upgraded to mountain lion.  I cannot reduce the size of ical to fit with mail on my 15" macbook pro.  In checking around, the new calendar does not allow us to size the window as we want.  This is a big miss for apple.  we need to be able to size windows as we see fit.  also, in lion, and now mountain lion, we only have the option of the stupid fake-leather looking calendar.  We should have options for this, too.

    Please let me know if there is a fix for sizing the ical window as we previously had in lion.  Apple, if you are listening, go for simplicity and flexibility.  Let us decide window sizes, look, and anything else.


    thank you
