Hi,
Photo Mechanic Version 5.0, build 15277
Mac OSX 10.9.2

Yesterday I was using an external monitor connected to my Macbook Pro which had a significantly higher resolution than my mac's native. Now I do not have that monitor connected (and I do not have it available) when I hit cmd + u, the upload is off screen with only the bottom left corner visible. As its top is not on screen, I can not grab it with the mouse to drag it back in.. I closed and re-opened PM and still happening. Would greatly appreciate any suggestions as I am on a shoot now.

Thanks
-T

Hi Kirk,

Thanks for directing me to this fix. I had tried changing around the screen res in the display preferences and it had not worked until this point, but I tried this again using switches between different resolutions and eventually it brought the upload box back into the screen. Got me out of a big jam! Also Ireland won the match I was shooting so everything worked out great (sorry but I cannot help but mention that too for anyone out there who might appreciate it  :)  )
