A document page opens that is too big for the display and runs off the end of the monitor

How do you fix a problem where document pages open that are too big for the display and runs off the end of the monitor? The borders are off the monitor so there is no window edge to grab and adjust.

Please read this whole message before doing anything.
This procedure is a diagnostic test. It’s unlikely to solve your problem. Don’t be disappointed when you find that nothing has changed after you complete it.
The purpose of the test is to determine whether the problem is caused by third-party software that loads automatically at startup or login, or by a peripheral device. 
Disconnect all wired peripherals except those needed for the test, and remove all aftermarket expansion cards. Boot in safe mode and log in to the account with the problem. Note: If FileVault is enabled, or if a firmware password is set, or if the boot volume is a software RAID, you can’t do this. Ask for further instructions.
Safe mode is much slower to boot and run than normal, and some things won’t work at all, including sound output and  Wi-Fi on certain iMacs. The next normal boot may also be somewhat slow.
The login screen appears even if you usually log in automatically. You must know your login password in order to log in. If you’ve forgotten the password, you will need to reset it before you begin. Test while in safe mode. Same problem? After testing, reboot as usual (i.e., not in safe mode) and verify that you still have the problem. Post the results of the test.

  • Display too big for the monitor

    Suddenly it seems as though I have a dispaly for the visually impared. As if the monitor that would be needed to see the whole dipaly at once would be 32' instead of the 17" available. As a result, I can only see a small portion of the window at any one time. Is this a bug? or did something get turned on that I can turn back off? Please help!!
    Ps. This started just after my son watched a dvd on my computer.

    Hello Pieman18,
    Glad to hear that it worked for you
    The weather isn't too bad right now. We've been up in the 70's and higher for a little while. So, come on up
    But, for "millions of dollars" I think I could arrange a trip to California. I haven't been there in about 15 years. So, I'd enjoy the change of scenery.
    My wife will actually be down there in October. So, you could always give it to her. Just make her promise not to spend it all before she comes back home
    Anyway, I'm glad to hear that you found my solution helpful. It's nice when you can find a simple fix for the odd problems
    Welcome to the discussion boards. Be sure to let us all know if you have other questions.

  • Trying to burn an audio-book that is too big for the CD?

    I purchased an audio book (apx 2hours long). I tried to burn it to the CD but it keeps telling me that there isn't enough room on the CD. Is there a way to burn the CD to a folder, then split the tracks up to muliple disks?
    Keep in mind with audiobooks, it's one file, but when you burn it, mulitple tracks are created. (kinda like an .iso).
    Thanks for any assistance.

    DVD's can only hold about 4.7 GB's of DV Stream format (the format used by iMovie).
    DV Stream is 13 GB's per hour of recording so it would take 3 DVD's to "store" your data for a one hour capture.
    "Export" (back to tape) or use iDVD to "burn" an MPEG-2 version of your file.
    Only the "tape" version would not require some type of conversion on import.

    My tab default is1.25 which is too big for the A5 document I'm working on, how do I change the default tab so that I don't have to reset each individual line?

    Hi Hannah,
    Inspector > Text > Tabs Button > Tab Settings > Default Tabs.
    To set a tab stop on the go, click in the ruler.
    If you can't see the ruler, Menu > View > Show Rulers.
    To set tab stops for lines (paragraphs) you have already typed, select those paragraphs and set them all at once.
    Also, have a look at Menu > Pages > Preferences > Rulers.
    Regards,
    Ian.

  • When I open my iPad the page is too big for the screen and won't shrink down. The keypad has also become very 'sticky'

    Recently when I open any apps the pages are too big for the screen. They shrink when pinched but immediately become bigger again. It's very difficult to scroll too. The keypad has become very sticky. Missing letters and spaces when I type and needing to tap the keys much harder than usual

    I have the exact same problem, I think.  I was on my iPad 3's home page swiping R-L to locate a certain icon when all of a sudden the screen appeared to get HUGE.  So big I could only see one or two icons.  I couldn't even turn it off to try a reboot because after I pushed the sleep/wake button, I couldn't find the red slide bar.  I finally just had to wait for the battery to die, then recharge it, and it looked normal again.  I also spoke with several friends who haven either iPads or iPhones, and they've all had this happen to them.  I checked my accessibility settings, and Zoom was already off.  So what is causing this problem for so many people, and what can we do to prevent it?  Please help.

  • Attach/open file window too big for screen

    Just recently I've found that when I go to attach a file in email for example, or open something in the finder the window that comes up from which I can choose my file is too big for the screen. So the bottom corner, which has the "attach" or "Cancel" buttons, is obscured. It's very frustrating... I can hit enter to attach a file but can't cancel it if I change my mind. Hope that makes sense... I've moved the dock out of the way but that doesn't help at all, and I can't use the green button to resize or anything.
    Hope someone can help... I've also restarted the computer but the problem is still there. I'm using a macbook pro, and I have upgraded to the latest OSX software.
    thanks

    Hi!
    I'd click the title bar of the application, then click on the + to fit on screen.

  • My iPad standard window is bit too big for the screen.

    My iPad screen unexpectedly got slightly too big for the display window. The size is bit too big. For example, the keyboard when it pops up does not fully display all tkey sans. Another example is the time/power remaining bar slips out of sight.  Did I accidentally change something?  Is this an issue with version of iOS that I am using (4.3.3)? (Note I'm not talking about resizing by using your fingers.)

    John,
    I am having the same problem.  The enlargement is not the same as the 3 finger tap or the 2 finger zoom.  The screen opens and then bumps to a slightly larger screen just enough to make it too big to see the outer edges.  You can put 3 fingers on the screen and move the screen to see the edges but you cannot get it to shrink to the correct size.  This is the second time this has happened to me.  I am also having some other issues.  Sometimes while in an app the app will close and I will be diverted to the home screen.  And sometimes when playing "with Friends games" the letters on the letterboard (not the key pad) disappear, will not move or are giant.  I plan on taking it back to the Apple store this week but I hate the idea of having to start over.

  • My CS3/PS has started to change the cursor into a line of three VERY small icons when dragged over a picture or menu. Thus it is VERY difficult for instance to drag a layer in the layer list to the wastebasket - the cursor simply is too big for the waiste

    My CS3/PS has started to change the cursor into a line of three VERY small icons when dragged over a picture or menu. Thus it is VERY difficult for instance to drag a layer in the layer list to the wastebasket - the cursor simply is too big for the waistebasket icon. Even all other exact work is impossible.  Of course I have checked all the cursor presets but nothing seems to help. My OS is Windows7.

    Have you tried resetting Preferences?
    A logical next step would be to reset your Preferences.
    To reset Preferences:
    If Photoshop is already open on your screen, close it (Quit). Then hold down Shift+Ctrl+Alt (Win) / Shift+Command+Option (Mac) on your keyboard and start Photoshop.
    A dialog box will pop up asking if you want to delete the existing Preferences file (the "Settings"). Click Yes in the dialog box. The existing Preferences file will be scrapped and a new one will be created.

  • Desktop is too big for the display

    Some how this morning while on my Mac a display setting or something was changed. If your on the desktop, with all windows closed, the background, icons, dock.....everything is too big for the display. If you move the cursor all the way to left it will 'slide' the desktop in that direction. Move it all the way to the right edge of the display and it 'slides' the desktop to the right until you reach the edge. Also the same for the up or down directions.
    At first I thought it had something to do with the multi-touch track pad, but I don't think so. I have checked all the display settings I can think of and have tried re-sizing the desktop to all other settings in an attempt to fix the problem. Additionally I have restarted/shutdown the computer totally to see if it would fix the issue. No success. Please help.
    Thx,
    Audioboy

    I had the same problem, but the zoom was already off. So I went under "options" and unchecked "use scroll wheel with modifier keys to zoom," and that took care of it.
    Thought that might help some others who find this thread.

  • "[Filename]" is too big for the trash. Would you like to delete it permanently?

    Recently, when I delete files, I am getting a message stating, ""[Filename]" is too big for the trash. Would you like to delete it permanently?". This recently started showing up for no reason and in the past I have deleted files significantly bigger and not recieved this message. Any ideas why this is showing up and how I can stop it from happening?
    For reference, I have a 768GB SSD with approximately 470GB of space available so space is not the issue.

    nbar, it seems that this trash issue is a reoccuring issue and that it is resetting itself. I followed the article that provided a link to, but after following the steps and finding success, it started doing it again.
    If anyone has any idea on what might be causing this issue, it would be greatly appreciated...not a life or death situation...just really annoying.

  • Screen on my phone it seems to be too big for the phone

    Don't know if this a major problem but its bloody annoying! I've installed os 3.0.1 on my iphone 3gs 16gb and there was no problems, however when I looked at the screen on my phone it seems to be too big for the phone, only by 1-2mm. I'm able to move the screen either up or down by touch but its annoying, I can either have my signal strength, clock and battery showing or the phone,mail, safari and ipod at the bottom, obviously I keep the top of the screen visible but it wasn't like that before I downloaded that stupid update!! I would rather go back to 3.0 but I can't find it anywhere? any ideas anyone

    Have you zoomed in a little as per p. 187 of the manual... http://manuals.info.apple.com/enUS/iPhone_UserGuide.pdf
    If not, try resetting your iPhone by pressing the home and sleep buttons until you see the Apple logo, ignoring the slider. Takes about 5-15 secs of button holding and you won't lose any data or settings.

  • Display unaccountably gets too big for the screen

    This has happened maybe a dozen times, and I don't know what I did to make it happen. Suddenly, the desktop display gets too large for the screen, and I have to scroll around to find the dock or the menu bar. Whatever else I'm working on, e-mail, etc., gets outsized, too. Does anyone know how to correct this? So far, restarting has worked, but that's a pretty time-consuming way to do it.

    Cindy,
    Hold down the CNTL key and scroll down with the mouse or trackpad. That should change it back to size. This is called screen zoom.
    Cheers
    You can also deactivate it in System Preferences for the Mouse and/or trackpad.
