congrats: you are the second user which has this displaying problem Sad

I tried several things with the other user, but after a few mails he did not respond (and I hoped I fixed it..)
could you post your computer specs here please? (since this glitch does not affect more users it has something to do with your pc/installation)

- Java version
- GPU / driver
- Windows version
- Display setup (multi monitor display? high DPI monitor (like retina display?))

Oops, thank you. Of how many users?

Yes, of course (I have any idea of that, the specs etc., the display setup should be one Notebook display and a TV, never watched iMM on TV):

Sorry, do not know what GPU is.

Hmmm, well, actually I should have the newest one: http://i.imgur.com/N97HgAR.png. Tested here: http://www.java.com/de/download/installed.jsp
I am wondering, if I might have posted faulty information (if so, sorry).

So, that much users, well, it is not unsurprising, it is the best movie manager in this world.

All I can find about java on my system, says: http://i.imgur.com/vTsONPk.png. Very strange.

thanks for your help;
I finally found the problem:

the first movie set does not have any name - thus the height for the cell (and all others) was calculated wrong. You can temp. fix it by giving the first movie set a title.
I'll put a general fix into v2.6

No, no, many thanks for your help.

Ah, great, very well done, I just will wait...I can't wait for 2.6, I am looking forward to it...hmmm, I cannot remember to have seen an update check option in tMM. So I guess, there is no way to automatically let it check for updates. How could I be informed of updates?

Many thanks for your help.

I just tried, but...I am not sure: http://i.imgur.com/iI453km.png

I am not able to save the "Test" movie set, after restarting it is gone.

updates are always check when starting tmm; but 2.6 needs some more development and heavy testing Wink
Expect it in summer

Since movie sets are sorted alphabetically, I suspect it is now almost at the bottom of your list; but this also indicates that you have to change every "empty" movie set title to get it displayed the right way Wink

Hmmm, well, actually I should have had that idea by myself, but the alphabet....so I better will wait for the time in summer after heavy testing and may be heavy developing

There is no serch option for movie sets to search for movies there? And movie sets are not named automatically?

in general movie sets get their title from the movie NFO and/or from scraping. I did not find a way to create a movie set without a title Sad

btw: if you scrape a movie set, matching movies from your database will be detected and assigned

Sorry? I cannot find a search option on the move sets tab, so if I want to search for a movie I have to do it manually, right? So, e.g. I search for "Indiana Jones" and want to find it on the movie sets tab, there is no search field I could enter it, I have to search it just by looking through the entries there, is that correct?

What do these entries mean, why are these movies listed in movies sets: http://i.imgur.com/kUseqNV.png?
Why are there entries like "1 Movies" instead of the name of the movies like "Confidential" (http://i.imgur.com/TITStUf.png)? And why is "Confidential belonging to a set? Is there more than one movie of "Confidential"?
