The problem is also when I click on the button whose tooltip reads:

"Fit the schematic sheet on the screen <HOME>"

The width is correct, meaning the side schematic boundaries are close to the
window's perimeter.
But the top and bottom of the schematic sheet boundaries are not displayed. 
Maybe this is what is intended?

It is sort of like when you ask a PDF viewer to "fit width", and it has to
clip top and bottom.
