I'm starting Scrivener from an app that then sends a ^S every 10 minutes because you don't support saving state, just changes.

ProcessStartInfo startInfo = new ProcessStartInfo(textBoxAppName.Text);
startInfo.WindowStyle = ProcessWindowStyle.Normal;
p = Process.Start(startInfo);

The app does not open "Normal", it opes "Maximized" and it does not remember its size.
Same if I open it from Destop without my launcher,

Which version of Windows are you using? There is a known issue whereby a project window will reopen maximized if its height extends to the top and bottom of the screen (or to the taskbar); might that be what's occurring? I'm assuming here you're talking about the project window being maximized and not the Project Templates window.

because you don't support saving state, just changes.

I'm not sure what you mean by this. When Scrivener closes a project, all its settings and interface are saved. It is true that not every aspect of the project is saved by the autosave while working, in order to keep the process quick, but everything is saved on close.
