Unable to use full screen

Hi I just started using CrossOver to install Gimp on my Chromebook but I can't find a way to make it fill the entire screen. When running in normal mode the bottom of the screen is left empty (around 10% of the total height of the screen) if I try to resize the window it fills with black color, but the actual window does not resize.
When I try to run on desktop mode, it is worse because it runs in a small portion of the screen, leaving most of it in black color.
I have also tried to change the graphic settings in wine configuration, but none of them seem to have any effect in this issue.

Has anyone run into something similar?

I have this problem too. I tried to run Microsoft Office 2010 on 2 different Chromebooks but it didn't work.
