Window stuck under application frame

Post by Penzilla » 03 Oct 2013, 07:41

Well, I have a somehwhat curious problem: my fx stack panel caught stuck under the top border of the application frame and I can't get it out from under there. See photo.

Anyone any ideas? :?

Okok, figured it out, switched rooms about 6-7 times then it magically got unstuck. Sorry! :roll: :lol:

Hi TvPaint.

I also have had the problem a lot. It happens sometimes when I minimize the program and enlarge it again.
(I currently use Tvpaint 10.5)
I tried to solve it by shifting between the rooms a little, as mentioned, and then I could get a hold on it.

I am also on Mac and when I used TVPaint 10.5 I had this problem occasionally . The way I would fix it would be to go to System Preferences > Displays and change the screen resolution from Best for Display to Scaled ... this would usually allow me to grab hold of the window that is stuck , pull it down , then go back to System Preferences > Display and switch it back to Best for Display . This would fix the problem.

I'm having a somewhat similar issue right now. I'm on a Mac and a Cintiq. The TVP interface is locked to the top of the Cintiq screen and I can't access the green dot to minimize the screen or be able to move it. I can slide it along the top edge of the Cintiq and then along the tope edge of my iMac, but it stays locked to the top edge.

Has anyone out there solved this one?

Hi !

I don't know if it will help you but can you try this please:
Click with the left mouse button on one of the corner of the window and maintain it (like if you want to resize it) then, press the button Alt and don't release it.
Then drag your mouse. The window should normally schrink and the title bar will appear so you will be able to move it and minimise it.

Hope it helps !

Unfortunately, while trying a number of different things to fix the problem, somewhere in the process I noticed the interface had un-stuck itself. The problem now is that I don't know what fixed it.
If this happens again, I will try the solution you've described with the Alt key and see if that does the trick.

Thanks for your help JeremyN!
