Maximising Burp

Peleus | Last updated: Mar 05, 2015 05:05AM UTC

I'm having a bug with Burp on a multi-monitor setup where it won't maximize and take advantage of the full screen. See the image below for an explanation - Burp will only maximize to the bottom ~90% of the screen. Clicking maximize (green button) resizes the window to this position (still leaving area at the top) while shrinking the window and trying to drag it to the top of the screen causes it to snap back to a maximum height once again as shown in the picture. Happening on both the left and right monitor of a 3 screen setup - the center screen (macbook pro display) works fine. Any ideas? http://imgur.com/ckLw9xC

Thanks for this report. Unfortunately, it sounds like this is an issue with Java / Swing on OS X. Burp uses standard Swing frames for its UI, and the Java runtime takes care of resizing windows when the user requests this.
