Resizing Tool Box
        Hello,
I am not able to resize the tool box. It is too tall and goes out of window. I can change the size horizontally but not vertically. Alt+F8 does not help either. It does not matter whether I use single window or detached.
Using Linux Mint 16 Petra and GIMP 2.8.6

RE: Resizing Tool Box
Gave up with Mint - I think they have lost the plot.

However, linux is linux. If you hold the alt key down, click and drag in the window you can move it off the display to a point where you can get to the bottom resizing handles.

Resize to raise the bottom of the window, then reverse procedure alt-click drag back to position. (big red 4-way arrows because the screencapture leaves the correct ones out)

Thank you rich2005. It has worked. I don't have this problem while using Windows XP_GIMP 2.8.10.
