i found out how to resize it. you can start up abiworld in a terminal and specify the size of the frame
$ abiword -geometry=X
where X is the size
cool

RE: abiword window frame resizing

The other way is to R click on the Abiword Icon showing on the bottom tool bar when it is open. This allows you an option to MOVE. Move the window until you can seen a corner and then, using the mouse, grab the corner and reduce the size of the window. When you the use the RESTORE button (top right) it should just then fill the screen properly.
