Title Bar buttons + maximised Mintty window = rendered in wrong spot

User Image
3 discussion posts
Title bar buttons are rendered incorrectly when you maximise a Mintty window. Non maximised they are fine. See the attached screenshot.

Steps to reproduce

[list type=decimal]
  • Install Mintty (
  • Enable Title Bar buttons
  • Maximise a new Mintty window
  • [/ul]

    What I expected to happen

    I expected that the Title Bar button would be rendered at the top of the title bar.

    What happened instead

    Instead the button was rendered half in the title bar and half in the console area (see attached screenshot).

    Additional Info

    Windows 7 x64
    Mintty 0.9.5
    Cygwin 2.721
    DisplayFusion Pro v3.3.0

    It looks like Mintty is a console application, and these can sometimes cause the TitleBar Buttons to be placed incorrectly. However, to correct this you can easily add a Compatibility setting for Mintty:

    This allows you to move the TitleBar Buttons in any direction, or disable them altogether for this application. :)

    Thanks for the reply.

    Correct me if I'm wrong, but it does not appear possible to change the title bar button offsets to ONLY apply when a window is maximised. By default the title bar buttons display fine if the mintty window is not maximised.

    Regarding mintty being a console application, I'm not quite sure what you mean by that, unless you are referring to applications like Console2 or ConsolePlus which try to emulate the standard windows console. If that's the case, then to the best of my knowledge, Mintty is not a console application.

    Perhaps Mintty is a special case, which means I'll have to add an exception for it in DF itself. I'll see what I can do for the next beta. :)

    This has been fixed for the upcoming Beta 1. :)
