RE: Newbie: UML Class Properties window unusable on laptop

Steffen, thanks for helping. Yes, I'm using 0.96.1, from the Ubuntu distribution. I've installed programs 
from source before, but I was hoping for a quick fix. I'll see if I can tackle this in the next couple of 

Thanks, again.

Hi Kevin,

I assume that you are using Dia 0.96.1. The next version of Dia (0.97)
will provide a much smaller UML class dialog.

If you want, you can test the new version. It's currently only
available from the SVN repository (you'll have to compile
it yourself).

I'm new to Dia and trying to create my first UML Class diagrams. When I created my first class and tried to 
edit the properties, I may have maximized the window as it was displayed on my 1024 x 768 laptop's screen. 
Now, the Properties window extends from the bottom of the top tool bar to below the bottom panel, which 
puts the buttons on the bottom of the window below the edge of the screen. I can't shrink the window from 
the top, and can't push the window up above the top panel to reach the bottom. The only way I can access 
the buttons on the bottom is to make the bottom panel auto-hide, and I can then see one or two pixels of 
the buttons and can hit them.

Can anyone suggest what I'm doing wrong here, and how to correct it?
