In my current colony in Rimworld I have a lot of different materials. Unfortunately, when I want to buy a wall or something else, when I want to select the material, I can't see all available materials because they appear to be out of screen. In the top of the list I have all those shiny things like gold, silver jade and everything else and for example granite blocks (I have build all my things from granite blocks) are out of screen and I can't select them.

For walls I can work around that by selecting build clone (don't know if that's vanilla or mods) but for new items I can't select all my materials.

Is there a solution for that?

I play on 1920x1080 and lowest UI scale.

Thanks in advance.

    Do you think you could post a screenshot? Have you tried running the game in windowed mode? – TheBird956 Jan 10 '17 at 1:55

  • Do you mean when you click the "steel wall" structure in the architect menu? Is it that the context menu items continue off the screen? – Samthere Mar 20 '17 at 15:41

Instead of right-clicking the Button on the bottom, like this:

Where you are unable to see all Options, press the corresponding hot key on your Keyboard and have your Mouse e.g. in the middle of your Screen. This will bring up the list next to your Mouse Pointer:

    In all my hours in the game, never knew about that. – Codingale Sep 11 '17 at 1:04
