When you have multiple forms with the same class #, Magic won't reduce
the size of one of them. It says it did, but NO. Give each form a
unique # then reduce the size.

Sorry,
I did not read the message well!

Try opening the header form and reducing the width
with the mouse or <shift>+<left arrow>

Magic will not reduce a form to a size which could not
hold all the controls on the form.

It may be that Magic won't reduce the size because it thinks the form is a
control.
I never thought of it this way but it could be.

By reducing the size with the above method this should not be a problem.
