diff window doesn't always re-size

Hi,

I have noticed that the diff window does not allow all re-sizing across my 2 monitors. When I have the 3-way diff window as part of a merge it works fine. But the 2-way diff window for comparing history blocks at about my monitor size plus ~100 pixels.

has anybody experienced this?

Is it a an IDEA thing?
Is it a Linux/Fedora-Core thing?


cheers,
Florian

Works for me on both Win XP and Win 7, IDEA 9.0 final. Though I've never
seen this problem with any previous version of IDEA either, including the
EAP builds. I guess the problem you're seeing might be Linux or video driver
related?

It really does look like a linux or video card issue. Yet, none of the other windows in IDEA behave this way. I can resize the editor, floating tool boxes without any issues. I can even move the diff window anywhere in the second monitor without any issues. So I do not know which settings I should try and change.

cheers,

Perhaps the JDK is reporting an incorrect horizontal screen size, and only
the diff dialog is trying to restrict its size based on that value? It might
be worth having a quick look at the IDEA community source to see if there's
any special dialog handling going on with the diff dialog. Also worth trying
newer/older JDK versions.

One thing I've noticed in the past is that if I used Remote Desktop to access
a dual-monitor machine running IDEA and then later logged in to that same
machine locally (without having logged off or restarted IDEA), I'd get some
very strange window behaviour and exceptions that were clearly as a result
of the difference in screen dimensions between the local and remote configurations.
These problems seem to have gone away with newer JDK and IDEA versions however.

Whatever it turns out to be, I wish you luck getting to the bottom of it!
These sorts of things aren't usually that easy to track down or resolve.
