    Hi all,
    Stupid question but have you noticed that when you open the application from the Dock and displayed as a grill (not sure how you name it in english...)...it is centered and once you move the cursor anywhere on the desktop it tends to move on the right and a part of it is not even in the screen...see my screen shot...
    Thx

    Looks normal (mine does the same thing, at least). It's trying to keep the grid aligned with its parent folder as you move across the dock to the left. When you go back to the grid (or move back to the right), it slides back into place.

    edit: if you turn off magnification, it'll stay in place.

    ah, yes, see i had magnification turned off. thats why i didn't see it. When I turn it on, i get that too. yea that is weird how they would allow it to move off screen like that. I mean, come on, whats the point of that?

    I've got this bug on 10.5.1 too. But, I've found that if I'm just looking at the desktop, and think click a stack, the grid looks normal (no kick-out to the right). If, however, I have a window up, and then click a stack, the grid does that "shift" to the right. Interesting bug, if nothing else.
