[Bug 760645] Re: Unity: a big part of many dialogs go outside of the vertical area of the screen on displays
>From a duplicate, Bug #774254 :
I have worked around this by installing compizconfig-settings-manager
and enabling the "Window Rules" plugin. You can make a rule
"type=Dialog" for "Maximize". Now all Dialog windows are opened
maximized. You could also make a "Size Rule" to have dialoges opened at
a fixed size.
This workaround is far from perfect, because it also affects the file
save dialog from Firefox, among others which is very ugly. But at least
all buttons and filetype options are always visible.
I noticed this bug is marked as medium and isn't assigned to anyone as
of yet. I think the priority should be 'high', because vital
functionality is hidden from the screen and the only way to make it
visible is to maximize the dialog window, or move it with Alt+mouse-
