Hello good morning,

I'm using AnyFilter plugin and I accidentally increase the window height beyond what I can see on my screen...including the settings button to change it back.
Any ideas, please? :)

Kind regards
John

I am guessing that you set one or both of the column sizes too large and cannot now get to the gear (settings) at the bottom of the Filter window.

I took a look and I cannot find where that is stored so I suggest that you contact the developer using the email address here: AnyFilter Support

Hello Louie,
yes I contacted the developer and he provided a workaround. I'll post it here in case others have the same problem.

"On Windows, it's straightforward to move a window using keyboard shortcuts, so you could move the Filter window up until the ⚙ (Settings) button is visible. But on Mac, that functionality is buried in the VoiceOver utility, and Mac won't let you move a window up so its title bar is off screen, so that wouldn't help you anyway.

Another workaround for both Mac and Windows is to click in the Filter window, use the Tab key to tab the keyboard focus to the ⚙ (Settings) button, and then hit Space, which opens the Settings window. It takes some trial and error to figure out when Tab moves the focus to the right button, since you can't see it :-< Also, on Mac, you need to the option System Preferences > Keyboard > Shortcuts > Accessibility > Full Keyboard Access: All Controls.

I'll think about how Filter might handle this better. LR doesn't provide plugins with full capabilities over the size of windows (which is why you have to set the size manually in the first place). Worse, a LR bug causes the wrong display size to be reported to plugins, so Filter wouldn't be able to provide an accurate warning."
