can only see half the image - help anyone?
Hi Everyone,
New to the forums and not very knowledgeable on GIMP as yet either, so quite possibly the problem is due to me (user error) but this is what it is.

when i open an image to work on onlyhalf of it is showing. It is as if i need to scroll down to see the whole page. I have the scroll bar visible, but it doenst move. When i try to move the image up the screen it moves out of its box, leaving a checkered background in its place.

I have taken screen shots to try and illustrate my problem, which are hopefully inserted or attached.
   
   

Can anyone explain what has happend, or what i might be doing wrong, and most importantly,how to sort it out?
I am using gimp 2.8 and run Ubuntu 13.04

Hi,
Thanks for the reply, yep, that makes sense, but... errm...how do i resize it?Blush i had a look at edit > preferences > display, and did see the option to set the size manually, but had no idea what size to try so took the option to reset all preferences to default, and it was fine - until i went back to single window mode, now its gone the other way and too far up..! lol

it is a fairly recent problem, so may be due to a recent update somewhere

HI,
Thanks for all the advice. i seem to have solved the problem through Edit>preferences>window management and clicking 'reset saved window positions to default value'
So far so good, it hasn’t reverted to its 'spastic mode' after a few times of shutting and re opening Gimp, and like you say, i have lots more in my tool box now - quite exciting as still being very new to gimp, i had forgotten what it used to look like! Big Grin

I didn’t get as far as the Gimp Profile, but very useful to know its there - thanks
