What OS and OS Version are you on?
Are you on a single or multiple monitor setup ?

i guess that his/her screen is too small and does not show the full dialog.

this is a well known issue on netbooks...

On my system the Style Manager window is 698 (w) by 640 (h). I dread to think what it must be like to use Scribus on a screen so small that it can't display this dialog. Gleeta, what size is your screen?

My apologies for taking so long to respond.

I use Xubuntu 12.04
single monitor set-up
screen resolution is 1366x768
even if screen size is too small, shouldn't there be scroll bars to accommodate?

Gleeta, can you try to reproduce this on 1.5.1svn ?

yep the 768 height is probably the cause.

as a workaround, you can press alt-a to apply the changes... and ESC to get out of the dialog.

or press the meta key plus the left mouse click to move around the window.

Kunda, I don't have 1.5.1, although I guess I ought to get it.

ale, thank you. That is very helpful. Very glad for a workaround.

We need to make this a Known Issue with the workaround:

OK, I'm still using Ubuntu 12.04 and there does not seem to be a 1.5.1 package for 12.04. I've procrastinated upgrading Ubuntu, but I'm running out of excuses not to. Let me get that sorted out because I'm anxious to give 1.5.1 a try.
