Max 2010 obj import issue

Hi guys,
I'm encountering this frustrating issue with 3ds max 2010 whenever I try to import a .obj file that is seriously driving me mad.

Here's a screenshot:


As you can see, the OBJ import options interface is too big that there's no way for me to click "OK" (or is it "Import"? Can't see it.) button to finish importing, and it's window is not transformable nor scrollable.
I'm sure I was able to import .obj files well in the past. Not sure why I can't now.

I'm wondering if anyone has been troubled by this before, or is there anyway that I can fix it?

Thanks

You might try and give this script a shot.

Not sure if the obj import dialog is covered though.

Annoying when that happens isn't it?

Does it work if you just press return?

If you're on Windows 7, try holding the windows key and pressing left or right a few times.

you are running with a resolution of 768 in height
the dialogs height is 728 which should fit on your screen
but you also use a somewhat big font, so the designed height of 728 is scaled (by windows) too much for your need
i would try a smaller font if you can't increase your screen-rez

With the OBJ Import options window, I can't seem to drag the script to Max, which means I can't get it to use, sorry. :(

It sure is. I mean, what is a modelling program if you can't even import a simple filetype as .obj?

I tried to press Enter/Return, but nothing happens.

It works for normal windows, but not for this damnable "Import Options". It just stands there like a wall, no matters what I do.

So far I think this is the likeliest reason.
I checked my current windows font size, it's already the smallest possible (100%). And yes, 1360x768 is also the highest resolution I can get.

Thanks all for your helps though.

Well looks like the forums requires way~ more than 24 hours to validate my last post.

So out of rage I managed to import the .obj file successfully, by hitting 'space' button.

Still I'd like to know the how to fix this oddly large dialog that prevents me to have proper use of it.

Thanks again
