    Hi!

    I have encountered a strange and annoying issue in OSX; Finder windows and open/save dialogues appear cropped, application documents are open but don´t show.

    Here´s how it appears:

    Finder:
    [​IMG]


    Open dialogue:
    [​IMG]


    It all happens suddenly after running for a few days. A restart resolves it, but it will happen again.

    Also, it affects applications too; currently open documents show up fine but I can not see other documents I try to open. They appear open judging by toolbars and application menu in the dock – but I can not see them.

    I have repaired permissions, done a disk repair from install disc, etc. All fine.

    Anyone have a solution to this rather annoying bug?

    Cheers!

    That's a nasty bug! :D

    I don't know, I'm not used to troubleshooting OSX so it's much harder for me to find a solution, I don't know, maybe you can download Onyx (free app) and run a complete maitenance script to delete all logs, application cache and etc.. It may solve your issue or it may not, but it's the best thing I can come up with, sorry for not being more helpful :)

    Sounds to me like a bad cache of some sort is to blame. Have you used any of the numerous cache cleaners out there for Mac OS X yet?

    Thanks guys! I´ve run OnyX, emptied caches and what not.

    I won´t know for a couple of days at least if the problem is solved. If it is I owe you a big thanks. If not, you´ll hear from me again ;)

    Ta!
