i think it would be great if blackmagic adds a tab to minimise the resolve application so that it can fit to any display size.

help help help!!!!!!!!!!!

Maybe you should upgrade to version 8.1 since support for that laptop is now part of the application.

Hey Prathvish

With the 8.1 Release we have added Support for Early 2011 MacBook Pro 15” with 1680x1050 display. At the moment we do not have any support for any lower Resolution screens.

It may be possible to adjust your screen but I don't have any help or info in this area i'm afraid.

Thanks!

Does your 15" display have 1650x1080 resolution (which is what was added in 8.1), or 1440x900 resolution, which is not supported?

The stock 15" Macbook Pro comes with a 1440x900 resolution display. The "Hi-Res" 1680x1050 display is an upgrade option. My guess is you might have the standard display.

Not closed just out of solutions I'm afraid.

The only suggestion I could give you is to plug in an external monitor with a higher resolution.

I hope this helps!

Thanks,

Snow Leopard allowed to change the size of the display on per app basis. This way Resolve worked fine on PB. That command no longer works under Lion. May be someone can figure out an equivalent command for Lion?

Anyone looked into statistics which Apple 15" have been sold more offten ?
Personally I would have gotten the bigger one too, but hey, its a bummer if all those are left out of this great tool just because of 100 pixels missing.
Hey Prathvish , does it scroll at least ?

Actually if you really like Resolve, go and ditch that Lion.
The scale down trick works totally fine on Snow and will bring back your toy.
No need to be all down, if you need it there will be a way , even if it means dual boot:)

Try to change your display resolution - in system pref-> displays ->'Scaled' - More Space.
Restart DaVinci and you will get a message to reset UI settings. Accept it and it should work.

I don't mean to sound like a jerk, but I'm really struggling to accept these non-solutions (such as reverting to an older OS, although it's granted that Lion is also lacking in many areas) to what I consider to be a design oversight. I would have expected to read something like, "We are working on a solution to this issue," not, "sorry, the extra 150px means you're out of luck." One of the best features about the new Resolve is the fact that it runs on MBP... except for the vast majority of the new ones. Is there really no solution for this other than toting an external monitor around with me everywhere I go?

Shoot
I too have a MacBook Pro with a screen of 900

Bummer it doesn't work on my 15" display
