Title: [fixed] Onscreen position of files in Melody Assistant 7.9.5c on macOS 11.6.5
Post by rasalgethi on May 23rd, 2022, 1:38pm
Melody Assistant files under OS X intuitively always positioned themselves to fit within the available area of a desktop Apple computer screen.

Irrespective of where the Dock was located, whether horizontally along the lower edge of the screen or vertically along its left or right edge, it was always acknowledged by MA files, as were the palettes along the top.

MA files still recognise the Dock when it’s at the bottom of the screen under macOS 11 (and now mac OS 12.4), but no longer do so when it’s against the screen’s left edge.

Instead, the Dock is ignored. Files open beneath it, with their staff editing menus against the left edge of the screen, and their vertical scroll bars against its edge on the right.

Simply moving files to the left in order to clear the Dock and reveal the menus also pushes their vertical scroll bars off-screen.

To ensure both the menus and the scroll bar are visible requires dragging the right edge of a file to the left a distance equal to the Dock’s width, then repositioning the file to clear the Dock.

Doing so each time a file is opened is not only onerous, but unnecessary, especially as all internet web pages—including the home page of Myriad itself—automatically acknowledge a Dock when located on the left side of an Apple screen.

The problem has been fixed, but whether from updating MA to 7.9.6, or mac OS to 12.6, is unknown.
