Print Image Settings dialog box appears too small on Windows 10

Hi, I'm new to GIMP. Having upgraded to Windows 10, my old image manipulation software no longer works so I have switched to GIMP.

I'm liking what I see so far, but I'm having a little trouble with the Print Image Settings dialog box. What I am trying to do, is to put crop marks around my image. Searching revealed that this should be at the "very bottom" of the Print Image Settings dialog box. I have found this box but it appears as if the window presented is too small, and I so not know if or how I can scroll down to the option I want. I have done searches for e.g. "print image settings dialog too small" on the mailing list but haven't been able to find anything. Any help is appreciated.

A screenshot of what I can see is at https://snag.gy/IKtkv5.jpg. Note the dialog box half visible at the bottom of the window.

I am using GIMP 2.10.8 on Windows 10 Home 10.0.17134 build 17134. Gimp was freshly downloaded from https://www.gimp.org/downloads/

Thank you.

Thank you.

It is a known bug with the new Gimp 2.10 themes.

Go into Edit -> Preferences -> Themes and change to system theme. Same place in Icons you can change the icon theme as well.

However, It will not do you any good as far as crop marks are concerned, that option is only available in the linux version of Gimp.

That works, thanks.

Shame. Seems strange, other Windows photo editors can manage it. Ah well, thanks for your help!
