Re: Symbol and pattern preview opens behind schematic on Mac

My understanding is that on low resolution screens, the preview appears in a popup instead of in the panel. That popup is not appearing. It appears to be popping up behind the schematic display.

Symbol and pattern preview opens behind schematic on Mac

This is a duplicate of a bug mentioned over on DipTrace Schematic Capture: When the screen resolution is sufficiently low under MacOS, the symbol and pattern preview popup opens behind the schematic design area, where it is not visible. This is an issue on Macbooks, because the pixel-doubling displa...

Re: Symbol & pattern are missing in Place Component panel - how to show them?

I managed to fix this. The problem (I think) is that Apple Retina displays run pixel doubled by default. To most apps, the 15" retina display looks like it's only 1440x900 pixels high. The extra pixels are used to make the image 4x more detailed. However, the total area available for drawing is redu...

Re: Symbol & pattern are missing in Place Component panel - how to show them?

I'm also having this problem. The preview window is opening behind the schematic. It's particularly frustrating because the Library and Part lists are quite large and I would gladly resize them to make room for the preview, if I were able. I'm on a 2015 Macbook Pro with 2560x1600 resolution.
