Good Morning

When I click on the component palette the Form is resized to the default size and even if I resize it again, clicking it again returns to the default size.

Does anyone know how to solve this problem?

I'm using Lazarus 1.6.4 on Linux Mint 18.1 Cinnamon.

Thanks

If you looked a few posts down you would have seen my old thread http://forum.lazarus.freepascal.org/index.php/topic,35218.0.html  :D

I haven't used Linux since but I remember fixing this issue by installing anchor docking and sparta docked form editor packages.

I've noticed that, too, on some older version of Mint/Cinnamon. My solution was to switch back to good old Debian Xfce (for many other reasons, not just this problem).
FPC 3.0.3
Lazarus 1.6.5
Debian x86_64, arm

I had the same problem on arch linux and linux mint. In both I used Cinnamon interface (GTK3) , so i changed to XFCE4 (GTK2) and KDE (QT) and this bug does not appear anymore. One of these methods may solve your problem: Change your interface (I think you're not going to do this).
Or change the LCL of your project to QT (QT is better than GTK, my opinion).

!!!! IN EXTREMELY NECESSITY you can change the LCL of your project to GTK3 (GTK3 is beta on lazarus and i don't know if this can solve your problem).

Sorry for my bad english. :D
