Hrrm, I'm not seeing that.

I've both uploaded a document to a course and imported the published:


in both cases I get full nav controls.

(I've done all the testing on the fsu machine too.)

Could you point me at the published document that isn't working for you?
BBecause it all looks like it works correcctly to me.

Nope. (Since the neccessary size for the top frame to remove scroll
bars will be heavily dependent on the font size and window size and
resolution of the user who is browsing it. Somucking with the size
will just eliminate the scroll bars for you but not necccesarily any
