after upgrade to 3.5.13 I can't select insert or cancel buttons on the Macro insert screen

after upgrade from confluence 4.3.6 to 3.5.13, when tried to insert a macro (autocomplete) and select a macro from the dropdown list, the macro insert screen popup and I can only see half of it (the other half is out of the screen), so I could not click the insert or cancel button. What's wrong with it? Thanks

There isn't really anything wrong. But apparently your screen is relatively small. Do you have a custom theme installed? This theme might introduce the problem with not being able to scroll down.

we use Adaptavist Theme Builder, before upgrade it is OK. I'm not familiar with the builder, can you give me some advice what should I check and fix this problem? Thanks

Hi Sherry,

It has probably something todo with the stylesheet in your theme. Theme Builder by itself is not doing much. It must be configured and customized. If you are not familiar with CSS or with configuring theme builder I'd advise to find someone with more experience to look at it. We've been implementing a site with theme builder and it worked fine for us. But our customer is not doing any changes on the configuration of theme builder.

Hope this helps you

Thank you very much for your help, I have a close look at the CSS within the layout and fix the problem. Now I have other problem displaying contents on dashboard, I believe it is the CSS issue. The question is - I don't know which layout I'm using as this is not a page within spaces, there are dashboard screen. In our theme builder, there are similar layout names, e.g. Dashboard, DashboardWIKI, etc. How does confluence know which layout is for the dashboard? We can change the space layout via Manage Spaces within Admin Screen, but I don't know how to change to a different layout for the dashboard.

The layout of the dashboard can be changed in the file global.vmd in your theme plugin. This can also be done within Confluence Admin. See changing the global layout here: http://confluence.atlassian.com/display/DOC/Customising+Layouts
