NX Menu Display Behavior

Creator

Hi,

I am having this odd behavior of Menu when it is displayed.

We moved to a new computer and noticed this. It was working like drop down, compared to side drop as shown in the picture

I don't know if this is related to NX or Windows OS (Windows 7 professional 64bit)

Thanks in advance

Your screenshot looks like the normal behavior to me...

 

What version of NX?

I was thinking the same thing. Nothing looks out of place.

Do you know what the pixel count of your old display was, vs. the pixel count of your new display?

 

Could be you went from 1200 (vertical) to 1080, so the available space is less.

Previous screen was 1600x1200
New screen is 1920x1080
On my previous screen, it was drop down below and below
New screen, it's moving to side and side..

I tried on NX 8, 9 and 10
All of them shows the same behavior

I'm guessing the 120 less pixels vertically means that NX is running out of room to drop "down" so it drops "sideways" (and "up" as needed so it is all visible)

OS on both old and new are same (Windows 7 Pro 64bit)
The only change is hardware

This is standard behavior. The menus will start to cascade "up" if they approach the bottom of the display rather than continue to cascade "down" until they disappear.

 

Similarly, if they start to get close to the right side, they will start to cascade left.

 

This is expected behavior on any OS. You may be noticing it happen more because you shortened your avaialble vertical space when you went from a 1600x1200 screen to a 1920x1080 screen - you lost 10% of your vertical resolution.
