Post floating windows wrong when startmenu at the top
See this screenshot: http://imgplace.com/directory/dir364/1174134486_4813.jpg

If the Startbar is at the top of the screen and i set a window to floating, then i cannot move it until i move the startbar first.

Please set the starting position in a way that makes it easily possible to move the floating window!

regards

I acutally had the same problem some days ago - however I'm not sure, this problem is TW-related.
Iit could be a windows-bug:
Windows XP isn't even able to position the wallpaper correctly, if the taskbar is at the top of the screen.
Moreover this problem does occur with quite a number of programmes (I experienced it with 4 programmes incl. TW).

Greetings

Well, this is a problem of TW: fixed. Now, it should position itself below the taskbar.
Thanks,

Haha, it is very usual for developers to assume that the windows taskbar is on the bottom area of the screen so they tend to forget that this is not the case always. Actually, windows give you the tools to make and app behave properly, it's not that tricky.

Well, i understand this assumption ;) And the programmes I was alluding to are written for a rather limited number of users. So this might explain why the developers didn't take that much care.

but it's still interesting, that windows doesn't position the wallpaper correctly ^^

Although we tend to think of "Windows" as one big program, actually there are many people involved in it and it is a collection of programs. It is quite possible that the people that programmed the 'background' were different than the one that programmed the 'desktop' or the APIs needed for that :)

Or maybe they were not in very good terms and could not decide whose fault is it :lol:
