I cannot see the OK button on the print dialgoue because the dialogue is

Can anyone help?
I see it has been determined to be a bug and fixed, so this is just an
FYI for everyone. And, maybe a developer will read this. :-)
I don't know if this is true of Linux, but Windows and Macs have a
magnify function in the OS, so folks like me can enlarge the data on the
screen. It's an inconvenient solution for full time use if you use the
option that imitates a magnifying glass.
However, one of the options you have is a setting, both OSes, that that
creates a "virtual screen" that is larger than your display. Back in
the Win 3.x days, some graphics cards had this option, and at least one
of them called it a virtual desktop. Using this is like having a 6X6
sized screen, but looking at it through a 3X3 hole. And you slide the
6X6 screen around until the item you are searching for appears in the
Today, the ability to change screen resolutions is a far, far better
option. I have 2 monitors that are 1920X1200 native resolution. I used
to be able to read that setting with no problem. But not any more. :-(
The simple solution was to change the screen resolution setting to the
next lower resolution that has the same aspect ratio. If the next one
down doesn't quite work, go one more. So the resolution displayed by my
Mac is 1600X1000, and on Windows 10 it's 1680X1050.
This idea works great, until you start working with a laptop and small
screen. If a dialogue box is not designed to work with a smaller
resolution, say 800X600, you will have the exact problem you mentioned.
In Windows, this can also happen if you set the magnification from 100%
to 125%, for example. I had a client where the magnification was set to
125%, and the dialogue box for a particular program had the buttons off
the bottom of the screen. I could force the screen to move using the
mouse, but as soon as I let the mouse button go so I could click on a
button, the screen snapped back to the original position.
