yEd is not visible if 2 monitors are used (one with pivot)

0 votes


I use yEd on Ubuntu 13.04, with executable jar package, and following java version:

java version "1.7.0_21"


OpenJDK Runtime Environment (IcedTea 2.3.9) (7u21-2.3.9-1ubuntu1)
OpenJDK 64-Bit Server VM (build 23.7-b01, mixed mode)
I found that if I have another monitor attached (primary screen is laptop's LCD) and this monitor is rotated (has pivot), yEd positions its main window outside of visible area. There are also some problems with menus (sometimes they don't show up after clicking menu bar labels).

Does this happen with the official Oracle JRE, too?

I've got the same problem with Oracle JRE:

java version "1.6.0_17"
Java(TM) SE Runtime Environment (build 1.6.0_17-b04)
Java HotSpot(TM) 64-Bit Server VM (build 14.3-b01, mixed mode)
Please note that version 1.6.0_17 is really old. Please try a recent Java version.
I installed yEd with java version 1.7.0_17 now.
Same problem, but once you found the Window (It was right of the right monitor) and restart yEd, the window will be on the monitor where you closed it.
