I think the only possibility to get rid of the dialog and the behavior you report is to turn off dynamics (uncheck Evaluation -> 'Dynamic Updating Enabled'). But this is probably not what you want, since obviously you are using dynamic content in your notebooks. Instead I would recommend to check which dynamic parts of your notebooks make this dialog appear and try to get rid of those. I have encountered the problems you are describing when resizing windows containing deeply nested Panels which contained OpenerViews. My impression on this was that Mathematica didn't like that it had to recalculate the panel sizes (or did that in an inefficient way). So I don't nest Panels and OpenerViews that deep anymore and the problems are gone. There might be other things that just don't work very well (yet) and need to be avoided. Remember that all the Dynamics-stuff is rather new code. Actually I am surprised how well it works overall for being all new in version 6... hth, albert
