  • Closed as program error.

Error description

  • You have installed IBM SPSS Statistics 23.0 FP2 on RHEL 7.x (or
    CentOS or Scientific Linux...).  You find that when you maximize
    the Statistics window (Data Editor, for example), you cannot
    access the menus.
    
    This effect is greatly increased at lower resolutions (e.g.
    1024x768) as the menus require more space than the resolution
    will allow.
    
    WORKAROUND:  You've also noted that:
    1) If you simply interact with the window as launched, the menus
    are fine.
    2) If you resize the window in place, the menus are fine.
    3) If you move the window to the upper left of the desktop prior
    to maximizing it, the menus are fine.
    

Local fix

  • This issue will be addressed in a  future release.
