I fold on a netbook with a 768 x 1024 screen.

There are at least two submenus that I can't close on this size of screen once I open them (Undo>Graph Properties and the Electron Density submenu), because the X to close the submenu is under the Rank/Score box at the top of the screen.

The Graph Properties one I can just avoid, but it is pretty hard to play an ED puzzle without being able to close the ED submenu.

The ED menu covering up 1/3 of my screen:

The Graph Properties menu:

Here both are open at once, Graph Properties on top of Electron Density:

I have the same problem if I'm not careful...

I wondered how that was possible - on Windows 7 the ED dialog box is always in front of everything else.

I don't know how it's possible, but my screenshots show that's how it opens.

I have been told to just drag it to the side so it's not under the Rank/Score box, but as the screenshot shows, the entire top of the submenu including the closing X is inaccessible, since it is under that box.

My OS is Win 7 Starter.

Why not just change your screen resolution?

The netbook's two resolution choices are 1024x600 and 800x600. The submenu visibilty problem occurs with the resolution set to 1024x600.

With the addition of the View Option "Show expected residue burials", now I cannot reach the option to "Show bonds (loop)" and there is apparently no hotkey for loop bonds.

This is what is covered up by the Rank/Score box so I can no longer access it:

I don't care about sheet or helix bonds, I have the hotkeys for those memorized.

My netbook screen resolution is already maximized at 1024x600.

I'll take a look at some ways of resolving these off screen dialog issues. Probably a first fix of being able to close the top dialog by hitting ESC, and then properly fixing later.
