Screen doesn't fit since 5.1.1 upgrade

Martnal
On the PERSON Editor screen I can no longer see the CANCEL & OK buttons.  If
I click and drag the screen by the very top edge I can just see the top of
the buttons, but it slips back down as soon as I release the mouse.

Currently as a workaround I have to use ESCAPE and then click on SAVE
CHANGES, hardly safe.

I have no other PC problem.

I am using Windows 10.

What are your screen dimensions?

The settings are store in c:\users\you\AppData\Roaming\gramps\gramps50\gramps.ini.
For the Person editor, the settings are in the [interface] section and are:
person-height
person-width
person-horiz-position
person-vert-position

You can close Gramps, edit any of these values if you wish, but it is probably easier to just delete them and let Gramps revert to the default values.  When you start up Gramps again, you can then adjust the position/size as you wish and it will be saved for later.

P.S. we are at version 5.1.1 at the moment, it has some new command line startup commands that would make this a bit easier.

You might also try dragging the edge of the top of the screen; that should make the window smaller.  Then drag the title bar upward to expose the bottom of the window.

Should have said drag the top edge of the editor window to shrink the window, then drag the title bar to move it up.

Thank you.  I must have had a bad attack of the stupids.

Hi all, I inadvertantly replied only to Martin. So here it is for the benefit of others. try this to move the window so that you can see the off-screen buttons. Hold down the alt key and press F7. You should see a 4-headed arrow cursor in the screen. Moving your mouse will move the window in that direction. So, move the window upwards until the buttons are visible. Then click a mouse button when it's where you want it. Now you can click on your button of choice.
NB! This also works in Linux.
Cheerio,
