If you're starting it through an xterm, i.e., exec xterm -e acrobat,
you can use the -geometry switch.
Possibly acrobat itself has a similar switch.
What I do when I have programs that do this is to start on a bottom
section of the desk so that when the window goes off the top of the
screen I can get at it by popping up to the next section of the
desktop. That's a kludge but it works.
Supposedly the "savedesktop" module will preserve settings across
sessions & allow you to set up windows the way you want them ... it
seems to not always work, though.
