    Hi all

    This bugs me every day and I never thought to find a solution until now, typical. Basically when I right click and it's close to the bottom of the screen the right click menu is small and more options are only available after scrolling.

    Can I disable this effect and always have the right click menu open expanded?

    Many thanks
    Craig

    In what OS and application(s) does that happen?
    I use Mac OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard and if I right click somewhere near the bottom (Finder and Safari are the ones I just tested), the right-click menu gets positioned higher and no compressing is done and no scrolling is needed.

    Hi

    I didn't consider this might be software related. I see it daily in Adobe Flash. I guess I'll need to look there for a solution!

    Thanks for pointing that out haha

    No, Adobe Flash for making animations movies etc.

    This right click issue happens in the editor environment (when I right click on the time line).

    Ah, Adobe Flash Pro or Flash Builder.

    Yeah, I just tried the Flash trial, and encountered this strange behaviour:

    But when I right-clicked further closer to the bottom:

    I'm quite new to OS X and assumed it was OS behavior and not software related. I'll chase adobe for a fix, thanks for your help simsaladimbamba (what a curious username you have).

    It is from a German children's song: Auf einem Baum ein Kuckuck (saß) (On a tree a cuckoo (sat))
