Windows menus popping under

Tried your 2.6 version.
Big problem, dialog boxes and newly opened windows are popping up under the main GIMP windows.
Also, the right click menu in the layers window get pushed behind the main window as well and makes it unable to be used at all.
Thought this might be due to the fact I'm using 9 Spaces desktops but I turned spaces off and still get the same result.
Will do a restart of OSX later and see if anything changes.

... could not reproduce this.

Gimp 2.6.0 handles the toolbox window differently

You can adjust this under Preferencies...

For the stupid amongst us (me!) can you point out where this is in Preferences - just been searching and can't find it ...

What about reading the manual?

Although it's 2.4, you will get really great and useful information there

Thanks,
Switching from "Utility Window" to Normal or Keep on Top in the window management area fixes the pop unders.
Still think this is a bug though.
With Utility Window "ON" any new window/dialog in gimp gets pushed 3/4 of the way off the screen and is popped under the layers toolbox.
Does this when I tried to open the Preferences, Filters, Save and others.
Also, the main toolbox and layers toolbox are kept on top of all windows from any other apps on the system.
and again the right click menus are displayed behind the main toolbox and layers toolbox, can only see the very edge of the menu.

IMO it's a feature

this depends on the position of your toolbox window.

Maybe this topic should be discussed on some gimp developer forum and on xquartz-devel too...

Any other experiences? Does dropping a file on the Gimp's Dock icon work? What about dropping on Gimp's main window?
Help browser and online help?

Utility Window could probably be turned off by default. On Linux this is done so there's less entries in the task bar. Since OS X uses a dock instead of a task bar, utility windows bring very little more

Dropping a file onto the gimp dock icon while gimp is not running, opens Gimp and the file as expected.

Dropping to the dock or to gimps main window while gimp is running does nothing.

Clicked the (F1) Help, and at first I got a dialog saying that help was not installed and a button to choose to read online.
Clicking "Read Online" freezes gimp and didn't redirect me to a webpage like I thought it should.

Now if I click help gimp freezes and I have to kill it and X11.

..and sorry but right click menus displaying behind the layers toolbox and save dialogs being pushed almost entirely off the screen is not a feature.
No biggie, just kinda confusing when thats the default setting.

status:
- trying to get drag&drop working, some gimp sources need patching
- gegl sources had to be patched to not use dotfiles

... more will follow soon

This is what happens for me, other than this. the toolbox-feature is awesome. makes the interface so much cleaner.

Thank you for building 2.6 Lisanet. I have a few bugs however.

First, as mentioned above the utility Window appears above the menus (see andreasw's picture). Secondly, the right control/command key on my keyboard doesn't work. This is important if you like to remap keys (for example, control+, for the preferences which can be done with one hand now needs two). Three, try and make the utility windows disappear if Gimp/X11 aren't active (like Photoshop).
