It is a bug - and seems to be a problem with the way that OSX's java
implementation fails to handle interior menu bars properly.
http://issues.jalview.org/browse/JAL-368 is the most recent iteration of
From the bug report, you can see there is a workaround: A colleague -
Richard Bickerton found that if you use X, followed by G, to expand and
then collect all the views on the alignment (after first creating
another view with control-T if you don't have one), then all the windows
should get placed within the visible region of the desktop again.
ps. You'll notice that these bugs are fairly old - mostly because they
can be worked around, to some extent. However, since I've recently moved
to a mac as my main development machine I've been noticing a lot of GUI
problems with Jalview - which means I'll apriori have more interest in
fixing these issues sooner rather than later!
