Single Window Mode:Toolbox Stuck
Hi. I'm using GIMP 2.8 on a windows machine. In single window mode I accidentally dragged the edge of the toolbox across my window and now it won't drag back. I get the resizer double-headed arrow but the edge won't move. I don't know what to do. It's entirely unusable in single window mode now, which is what I usually use. Does anyone have any suggestions? I'd be grateful.

Hmmm, if it were me I'd use multi-view mode, much more flexible, plus you can have another program open under if needed & its friendly to your screen real estate.

Single window mode is finicky in 2.8.6, maybe its better in 2.8.8

To more things to try if you really must use this odd PS-wannabe mode XD

#1
go to "Edit > Preferences > Window Management"

- Click "Reset Saved Windows Positions to Default Values"

See if that works. If not, try to restart Gimp,

#2
Click off the "single window mode" Then reposition the windows so their all visible on the screen.
- Then turn back on the "single window mode"

When I was used/tested single window mode (briefly) and I turn it off, it stretched the windows Tall/vertically. So if you did have it setup in multi-mode wen you make the switch it can get moved around.
Hope one of these fixes it

RE: Single Window Mode:Toolbox Stuck
Thank you so much for your reply. I tried those and I couldn't get them to work, so I just downloaded 2.8.8 and everything's fine. So maybe the issue is moot? To anyone else with this problem in 2.6.8: upgrade! Big Grin
