Edit Presets Menu under Taskbar when maximized

Post by sighunter » 30 Apr 2019, 11:29

So this has been happening to me since like forever when filebot is maximized and I thought it would get fixed eventually but it never has been, so I'm now reporting it:

the "Edit Presets" button/link is under the taskbar and not clickable. workaround is to set filebot to windowed and make the window small and on the upper half of the screen. but it's annoying. fix?

Sorry, dialog layout is part of the underlying toolkit and generally can't (easily) be fixed in the FileBot code base. Java Swing doesn't seem to take Windows 10 app bar into account, for some reason.

Thanks for reporting the issue though.

I looked into it. Java Swing even has code for that, but somehow only uses it so that sandboxed apps can't overlay the task bar, which of course isn't the case for normal applications.

Found a hack though to make the popup window Always-on-Top which should fix the issue, making the popup appear above the task bar.
