I know it's a silly one but I'm working on Premiere and sometimes I use that menu. It opens downwards from where I click and since I click it only when I'm on the bottom of the screen, the menu only shows some options and an arrow down to display the rest. What I want to do is to make the menu open using all the screen it needs in order to show every option. I know that's possible, I mean every other app does that.
If it wasn't clear enough I leave some photos. (ignore the language).
This is how it opens:
And this is how I want to open directly without me having to scroll down:
That is odd, on my Mac system if I control click on an element near the bottom of the Premiere window, the drop down menu drops up:
I have no idea how you can control that but am wondering if by chance you are using a smaller screen laptop to edit?
Yeah, I know that's not supposed to happen. In my desktop computer that doesn't happen but still, my laptop it's a 15-inch macbook pro, it's not that small.
Screen resolution has to be a minimum of 1280x800.
yeah it has a bigger one
When Premiere moves in mysterious ways you can always try trashing preferences.
Just tried it on my 15" Mac Book Pro and get the correct action:
My screen rez on the lap top is set to default.
That's weird, I have it on default (1440x900). I tried changing it and it works properly when I put a bigger resolution. But from 1440x900 or less doesn't works.
I just measured the context menu for a clip in a sequence, and that menu is 914 pixels tall. Maybe Premiere will only show part of the menu if it's taller than the display's vertical pixel dimension.
To test that, what happens if you right-click the Program monitor? That menu is 766 pixels tall. If the entire menu displays on a 900px tall display, that would indicate Premiere only shortens menus that exceed the display height. If that menu also displays partially from the bottom, then it's not because of the menu height vs display height.
Hmm . . . my 15 inch Mac Pro display is 1680 x 1050.
I'm having this same issue - even though it didn't occur before a recent OSX update.
I've been editing on this 2017 MacBook Pro (15-inch) since 2017, and I never had this problem until recently.
This week, I will plug in an external 24-inch monitor to my machine and see if the problem still persists.
Then, I'll share an update here.
Hey, did you have any luck finding out?
Such a small but pesky problem. I'm wondering if anyone with similar issues has been able to resovle. I currently have this issuue and it just mucks up your ability to work effectively. It's isn't my screen resolution and I am operating on the most up-to-date version. I have reset my preferences.
I notice it on all CC platforms (Ai, Ps, Id, Pr). I cannot seem to figure out the problem.
I have the same problem with my Mac Mini M1, I tried to expand my window and resolved it, but sometimes the problem back.
